Piedmont (19-8, 7-3* Champs)
The Panthers have a new head coach in Alex Moe and a new conference as the Panthers move down a class to the 3A/2A Rocky River. Piedmont will need to ease the load from junior guard Miles Leaks this season. Leaks was named All-UCHoops and All-SCC as a sophomore and will only get better after leading the Panthers in points (14.5 ppg) rebounding (7.4 rpg), assists (4.2 apg) and steals (1.8) and helping to lead them to the 2nd round of the state playoffs. Howevet, they will need to replace three starters in Chase Fesmire, Hunter Hinson with Braden Collins who all graduated. Senior guard Fred Little is a spark plug who in limited time last season scored 4.4 ppg and 2.1 apg. The Panthers open the 2023-24 season hosting Queens Grant on Nov. 28th.
