?Scottsburg Warriorettes preparing for upcoming season PDF Print E-mail

?   After losing many players from last year, the Scottsburg High School varsity Warriorettes basketball team is back in action with a very young team. With only five returning players from last year’s varsity team, the Warriorettes lack some experience.  This lack of experience however is not keeping the team from having high hopes for the season.
  The team’s motto this year is B.I.G., which stands for banner in gym.
  “Basically we want to hang a championship banner in the gym,” said junior, Chrissy Nolan.
   Whether this banner is a sectional banner or an Mid-Southern Conference banner, the team does not care. They are working towards both, with a lot of effort.

?   The Scottsburg High School wrestling team enters this season with several key members returning to action looking to improve on last year’s results.
    The Warriors return four wrestlers that qualified for regionals last year and two of those wrestlers have been named to the preseason rankings.
    Juniors Tanner Howard and Nick Henderson both have garnered some preseason attention as both sit in the top 15 of their weight classes. Howard enters the season ranked no. 9 at 145 pounds and Henderson no. 13 at 171 pounds. Head Coach Tyson Skinner stated, “The preseason rankings are nice, but there will be a lot of changes to them after the season gets going. Both our guys are ranked based on last year and this summer, but both will be moving up a weight, so we will have to wait and see how everything pans out.”
