Unknowns and Undervalued

Posted On: 11/23/19 11:00 AM

The White Shield Warriors were one of the sneaky excellent teams in Class B last year, going 18-6 on the season. Two of those losses were forfeits at the beginning of the year to Montana schools and the Warriors lost in the Region semifinal game to Mandaree before beating Stanley to finish third. The Warriors could very well go into this upcoming season as the favorite in Region 8.

KEY RETURNERS: Jesse White, Riley Hodgkiss, Chontay LaCroix

White is one of the best players in the North Dakota 2021 class and coming off a season in which he averaged better than 16 points per game. He’s a potential all-state guard as an upperclassman, as he’ll take on greater ball-handling and shot-creating responsibility. He’s a terrific three-level scorer, as he’s an explosive slasher, strong finisher and solid shooter from the mid-range and beyond. 

Hodgkiss averaged better than 12 points per game for the Warriors and is a talented wing with good length and size who can fill it up. LaCroix was a rotation guy last year who was solid in a complementary role playing with White and Frederick Fox on the perimeter.
