She said she hopes to be able to bring the Warriors’ level of play up to that of contending for county and conference titles within a couple of seasons, but hopes “we can reach that level next year.”
After talking with the team and looking over the statistics from last season, May said she sees a squad with athleticism and speed, but also a strong inside presence.
“It’s going to be a challenge for me to find balance between speed and power on the inside,” she said. “I’m really excited about that challenge.”
To that end, the search for assistant coaches is currently underway.
“I want to be a coach that can teach the game, but also life lessons,” May said. “I want to be a coach that’s a role model for my players and I want to make sure I’m respected around the community. It’s important to me that I’m fulfilling all of those things.
“It’s important to me to get the right assistants that are willing to follow along with what I want to put in place with my system and are wanting to be great communicators and also role models for our girls as a staff.”
May will have plenty of local encouragement to achieve her goals.
“My whole family lives in Hendricks County,” she said. “They’ve all supported me along the way and I have a lot of people that are rooting for me and that means a lot.”
