by Elio Velez on Thu, Dec 4, 2014 2:51 PM 

Christ the King girls basketball coach Bob Mackey has a smile on his face while describing the team that plays its first game on Sunday against Moore Catholic.

But the Royals bring back talented juniors Sydney Zambrotta, Dominque Toussaint and players such as Kaela Kinder and 6-foot-3 center Ashley Howell look poised to make an impact. It’s almost a brand new team, but not quite.
