The Lady Cats’ basketball team, minus at least five players from the playoff bound volleyball team, opened practice October 19. Right now Coach Jeff Chapman, starting his seventh year as Lady Cats’ coach, has three varsity players: Daieyshia Pruitt, Sadavia Porter and Destinee Weeks. Once the volleyball players complete their season and show up, Coach Chapman is expecting far better numbers than he’s had.
Right now Coach Chapman has put things on hold. He’s not scheduled any scrimmages. He has scheduled Winnsboro here on November 8 but he’s quick to say he will cancel that game if volleyball is still going on. Coach Chapman says he could throw young players into the fire in scrimmages and regular season games but he says he would probably put too much pressure on them. Coach Chapman makes it clear he wishes the volleyball team success. He feels their winning ways will serve them well when they eventually hit the basketball court.
