Time to take reins on court

December 01, 2010 - When last year's season ended for Clarkston's Lady Cagers it was too early. Now they are back and looking to make a long run.

"We are very excited about this season," said Clarkston Girls Varsity Basketball Coach Tim Wasilk.

"We had a good summer and very good fall. The girls have played competitively in their summer and fall leagues."

Their motivation - improve from their 6-15 record in their 2009-2010 season.

The team has seven athletes coming back, including one senior Lindsey Reppuhn; juniors Anna Manilla, Jessica Ming, Megan Hastings, Christina Jokisch; and sophomores Natalie Drumb and Delaney Kenny.

New to the squad are juniors Breanca Cantrell, Sarah Rooding and Victoria Trimmer. They have young talent in freshman Kacy Robinson.

"We have a nice core of newcomers," said Wasilk. "They will help us out tremendously. We have a good mix."

He expects the girls to play off tempo style of basketball, involving a lot of ball movement and screens.

"We are counting on the same offensive styles as before," Wasilk added.

With two scrimmages already behind them, they begin the season quickly. The girls opened their season against Rochester on Tuesday.

They head to Troy on Thursday and are back home on Dec. 7 when they host Southfield-Lathrup. All games begin with JV at 5:30 p.m., varsity follows.

"I look forward to see what they can do in their first game and as the season progresses," Wasilk added.
