With the UIL allowing high school coaches to conduct one hour a week of skills work with their teams, coaches of several Wildcats and Lady Cats’ sports are having sessions of The Edge along with football. Wildcats Basketball Coach Clark Cipoletta is offering The Edge conditioning program for basketball players Monday through Friday in the Main High School Gym. Those entering 10th through 12th grades are there from 8 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. and Middle School and incoming 9th graders show up from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. With concerns about coronavirus, obviously there is no scrimmaging or one on one drills but Coach Cipoletta says he is concentrating on working with individual players on their footwork, shooting, dribbling, passing and finishing. He says players are getting better every day. Along with the skills, Coach Cipoletta says players are working on agility, conditioning and weight lifting. He says there are about 12 players in the older group and about 21 in the younger group. Coach Cipoletta says he is also sharing a few players with football. After wrapping up The Edge for football at around 10 a.m., the players hit the gym for about 30 minutes of basketball. Coach Cipoletta says he is very excited to be back around his guys. He says working with them is special.
