Chris Streeter, who served as an assistant coach to Ben Rausch last year, is taking over a program looking for some consistency.
Streeter should have a strong team to work with this season, with four returning letter winners and a host of players looking to get some time on the court.
The Warriors last year were small in numbers, with just four seniors and three juniors. Throughout the season, the Warriors struggled to put together a string of wins. They finished 9-7 in the Upper Iowa Conference, good for fifth overall.
The Warriors finished the regular season with three games in a row, including a 39-37 win over North Fayette. In the first round of the playoffs, the Warriors again matched up with the Hawks. However, this time SW wasn't as lucky, falling 44-60 to end the year 10-11.
For the season the Warriors shot 39.1 percent from the field and 22.8 percent from the three-point line. They averaged 51.8 points per game while allowing 50.2 points per night. They also dished out 248 assists, had 217 steals, 93 blocks and averaged 31.1 rebounds a night.
