Warriors look to return to championship ways

Caston returns veteran group; Cass has new coach.


Wagner said Brogdon is getting her shot back after playing volleyball this fall. He added Larkin, Ingram, Crist and DeGroot all have the ability to knock down jumpers at a good pace. He said Shorter will likely play more from the outside than she has in the past as well.

The Warriors finished runner-up to Frontier in the MWC standings a year ago and are looking to return to their familiar top spot.

The Warrriors are hosting a Class 2A sectional this year. It has a new format, as Rochester has moved to Class 3A and Rensselaer has moved back to Class 2A to rejoin the group. North Judson and North Newton remain in the field, and Delphi has been added in.

After tonight’s game against Knox the Warriors travel to Lewis Cass on Saturday night for a 7 p.m. varsity-only game.


The Kings have a new coach this year in Meranda Burnett, who won three state titles as a player at Tri-Central and went on to play at Gardner-Webb.

Burnett takes over a Kings program that is coming off a 4-17 season and hasn’t had a winning season since 2003.

The Kings do have a four-year starter back in 5-5 point guard Maci Maupin, who averaged 12 ppg a year ago. She along with departed seniors Maddie Eurit and Bre Robertson provided most of the offensive production last season.

Cass senior Kassi Zeck is back out for the basketball team this year. They have two juniors in Haley Johnson and 5-9 Carley Weaver. The Kings have two sophomores on the team in Ashton McClain and Bailey Gremelspacher, and two freshmen in Savannah Thompson and 5-10 Olivia Collins.

“Obviously our expecations are really high,” Burnett said. “We want to give 100 percent every day. That’s what we’re asking for is to give it your all and continue to set new standards and not get in a comfort zone.
