PROVIDENCE DAY CHARGERS
Head Coach: Brian Field (11th year as Providence Day head coach)
Coaching Career Record: 180-118
2015-16 Record: 30-4 (10-0 to win CISAA conference title)
Returning Starters: Devon Dotson, Jr., PG (6-1); Trey Wertz, Jr., SG (6-5).
Key Newcomers: Isaac Suffren, Jr., G (6-3); Kyle Wood, Jr., G (5-10); Luke Stankavage, Fr., G (6-0); Jacolbe Cowan, Fr., F (6-5).
Outlook: The defending, NCISAA 3A state champions lost their entire frontcourt to college basketball in Grant Williams (Tennessee), Josh Howard (Brown) and Isaac Johnson (Appalachian State). But coach Brian Field and the Chargers return one of the best backcourts in the state with major Division I recruits Devon Dotson and Trey Wertz (state championship MVP) plus Myers Park transfer Isaac Suffren. That trio will be shooting to help Providence Day defend its CISAA and NCISAA 3A state titles, but will need some help inside to do so.
