The Chargers had a pretty successful season last year finishing with only one loss on the season and a state championship.
This year they do lose 3 key seniors from last year that provided a lot of scoring for them but will look to get back to the state tournament. Cameron Ogle, Nick Wittler are the two returning starters this upcoming season and will look to take on bigger roles.
Let’s take a look at those seniors and the rest of the team from last year when we look inside the numbers:
The Chargers placed first this past season and only lost once throughout the whole season. They outlasted Clark/Willow-Lake 58-55.
This is the second top-three placing in the last couple of years for Sully Buttes as they took home third place two years ago in 2017.
The Chargers averaged about 66.5 points a game during the regular season. Three starters averaged double figures in scoring with 14, 20, 12.5 ppg. That was one thing opposing teams had trouble with was not being able to target one player to slow down but having to gameplan to slow down three or even four players.
Sully Buttes shot nearly 50 percent from the field during the regular season, which is difficult to play against day in and day out. They also shot a high percentage from the free throw line at 73 percent as a team.
The Chargers loved to share the ball and it showed with 19 assists a game. They were also very active on the other side of the ball getting 10 steals a game.
The Chargers start their season on December 11th at Lyman.
