Lady Cats Basketball Coach Brittney Tisdell, in her third year here, is conducting The Edge conditioning program and sports skills Mondays through Thursdays in the morning at the auxiliary gym at Sulphur Springs Middle School. The Edge got underway June 8. So far numbers have been light for high school players but 20 or more players are showing up for middle school sessions. Coach Tisdell says due to distancing and other restrictions due to coronavirus concerns, players drills are limited to individual work. For high school players, specific basketball skill work includes things like working on getting off shots quickly and shooting free throws. Middle school players are learning lots of basketball fundamentals, such as dribbling and shooting. The girls also get one hour a day of conditioning work. Coach Tisdell says she uses the middle school track for running and the weight room for lifting. She says the off season is a good time for lots of lifting. Coach Tisdell says she doesn’t want players being sore from lifting during the season with games to play. She says some girls are missing sessions due to family vacations and church camps. Coach Tisdell says he is enjoying getting out of her house and seeing some different faces. She says The Edge is also getting her used to getting up early like she will also have to once school gets back in session.
