With the departure of H.D. Woodson’s core players to Capitol Christian, it will be very difficult for the Warriors to continue their streak of 103 consecutive conference wins. First-year Coach Anthony Davis takes over a team that is extremely young and without a returning starter. . . . The Warriors have won the last eight DCIAA titles, but Wilson looks to be the preseason favorite this year. Tigers team leader Mercedes Suarez is receiving Division I interest and can do it all for Wilson. She averaged 16.1 points per game for last season’s DCIAA runners up. . . . Ballou’s Nadiya Holley will likely eclipse the 1,000-point mark this season. The Knights’ matchup with Wilson on Feb. 14 will be a good gauge to see where both teams are late in the season. . . . Anacostia lost talented senior Morgan Smiley but an experienced group of underclassmen look to step up and push for DCIAA title contention.
