No. 11 Weddington Warriors

Head Coach: Ryun Cook (7th year as Weddington head coach)

2014-15 Notes: Finished 29-2 overall, 10-0 in the Southern Carolinas’ conference (SCC) to win the league title; Advanced to the 3A state semifinals before losing to Hickory, 56-13.

Returning Starters: Remi Roberts (6-1, F, Jr.); Molly Mann (6-0, F, Sr.); Taylor Schuster (5-7, G, Sr.);

Key Returners: Erin Addison (5-5, G, So.); Laurel McCarthy (5-8, G, Sr.); Blaire Brown (5-4, G, So.)

Why Them?: Life without McDonalds’ All-American guard Stephanie Watts will be a challenge. But with 13 varsity players returning, the Warriors will be the favorite to win another SCC title and be a factor in the playoffs with forwards Remi Roberts and Molly Mann taking on bigger roles.
