Team: Lake George
Head coach: Blake White
Last year’s record: 28-0
Playoff result: Adirondack League, Section 2, regional and Class C state champions
Returning starters: Mason Flatley (forward/guard), Chris Becker (center)
Graduated: Alex Jones (point guard), Calab Scrime (forward)
Newcomers: Alex Leonelli (point guard), Colin Leonelli, Luke Pelchar (forward/center), Connor Vidnansky (shooting guard)
Outlook for season: Lake George lost its leading scorer (Scrime) and its starting point guard (Jones) to graduation, but the Warriors have two strong scorers returning in Flatley and Becker, who each averaged 15 points per game, plus a promising shooting guard in Vidnansky.
“The culture here is to win league titles and Sectionals, which is our goal again this season,” said White. “With the core being the two big men inside [Flatley and Becker], we feel with the new starters, we will have a balanced unit.”
