The goal for Warrior Girls Basketball this year is to be more competitive with all their opponents. Holding teams to under 40 points and also having players average over 10 points a game. “I believe coaching allows me to become a better teacher by getting to know the students on a more personal level” said Coach Wolken. The girls basketball assistant coaches this year are Ashley Faltin and Abby Kruger.
