Hannah Logan was recently hired as the next Warrenton girls basketball coach.
Warrenton High School Activities Director Kevin Fowler announced the hire last month.
Logan graduated from the Warren County R-3 school district in 2015 and played on the first Warrenton High School girls basketball team to win a distrit title. She also played for four years at Columbia College.
“I coach currently a traveling basketball team,” Logan said. “But my goal was always to go back and be able to coach Warrenton and be able to go back to where it all started for me. That’s my ultimate goal of why I wanted the position is I just want to be back in the community and coaching the sport I love and where it all began for me.”
Logan said the plan was to start offseason activities this week. The team’s first open gym was scheduled for today. They are allowed to have 20 contact days.
“This summer, we’re going to work on getting to know each other,” Logan said. “Some offenses so when tryouts come, we’re kind of in the swing of things. And then the upperclassmen can lead the underclassmen in the drills and we can just flow nice and easy for practice.”
Logan has already met with returning members of the Lady Warrior team. She believes the returning seniors will be great leaders for the program.
She hopes the team is versatile and is able to score both in the paint and at the perimeter.
“Hopefully, we’ll be tough to guard both on the inside and on the outside,” Logan said. “We have nice quality guards and post players from what I’ve seen.”
She also believes having a mentally strong team will be important. It will be important for the team to stay locked in the whole game, she said.
Logan believes it will also be important for the team to set goals, such as a number of turnovers per game or a free throw percentage goal. She also supports drills in practice having an ending goal.
“I like most drills to have an ending goal so we’re always working towards something,” Logan said. We’re not just going out there and doing it half paced. I like drills to have an ending goal. There’s either for sure a winner or if it’s a shooting drill, we have to score 200 points in five minutes.”
Logan replaces Greg Williams, who announced after this past season he would not return next season. Williams coached the Lady Warriors for the past eight seasons. Warrenton won 17 games and advanced to the state quarterfinals this past season. Williams led Warrenton to five district titles in his eight years at the helm of the program.
