The Warriors (9-17 & 4-10) struggled with a young team last season going for coach Gary Ellington as he enters his 12th year at Weddington. The Warriors lose 3 starters from last year’s team. Charles Pinner, Caleb Dixon and Brock Peeler all graduated. Senior wing Jared Applegate (5.3 ppg/2.4 rpg) and guard Wayne Dixie (7.8 ppg/3.8 rpg) return as does sophomore Brock Bowen (5.5 ppg/2.0 rpg) all return for the Warriors. Bowen moved into the starting role mid-season and looked good. 6’4 freshman guard Chase Lowe could be the difference maker for the Warriors. The Warriors will open the season at Ardrey Kell on Nov. 20th.
