Season highlights: Coach Shawn Palmer’s Rangeview team experienced a good amount of turnover, but the program’s long track of success continued despite a mostly new group of players rising to the forefront and leading the way to an EMAC championship as well as a run to the Class 5A Sweet 16. Palmer knew he had a breakout talent in Stroter, who didn’t get a lot of playing time as a junior due to the talented frontcourt players on the roster, but he thrived in his senior season and earned his way onto the All-EMAC first team. While an explosive dunker, the high-energy Stroter also created mismatches with his ability to shoot from 3-point range as he was second on the team with 34 makes. He scored in double figures in all but three games and reached or passed the 20-point mark six times — with a season-high 26 points coming in a win over Vista PEAK — on his way to a team-leading average of 15.7 points per game. He had three double-doubles and paced the Raiders with 6.8 rebounds per contest, while he also led the way in blocked shots at 1.3 per contest in addition to 1.5 assists and 1.3 steals per game. Stroter earned selection to the A-Town All-Star Game for the first time.
