"I've always been the youngest, but I'm seriously the oldest on the team now, even among the seniors," Corpuz said. "It's interesting to see how they will listen, with that seniority."
Corpuz, a two-time All-Area guard who averaged 14 points as a junior, takes her responsibility seriously.
The Wolves get together every Thursday. Corpuz hosts team sleepovers at her house, then they switch off to a teammate's.
"We go in the pool, go on a trampoline, do fun stuff," Corpuz said. "I think it's helping us jell, get familiar with each other, different puzzle pieces fitting together."
Corpuz and the Wolves wrapped up their June schedule this week at the Oswego Shootout.
Oswego East is pretty young, with Carly Engelhardt and Katie Jorgensen joining Corpuz as the only girls returning from last year's 16-13 team with any real varsity experience.
So it's good to have a seasoned hand like Corpuz around.
"She's awesome," Wolves coach Abe Carretto said. "I've been pretty fortunate with point guards, we've had some good ones. Christine speaks up, talks to her teammates, run drills, she's awesome at ballhandling. As a coach you don't get kids like that all the time that have that leadership. Hopefully that will carry us down the road."
