Title: Looking to the 2008 - 2009 Basketball Season.....
Post by: Loctavious on June 05, 2008, 09:51:08 AM
Looking ahead, next years Girls B-ball teams look solid

        The incoming freshman class has at least 15 known players based on last years numbers in 8th grade at Fairfax.  That's not taking into account any possible players from other surrounding areas.  Many of them have been playing for 5+years.  There's a good mix of heigth, strength, speed, agility and leadership. 
         The JVA Girls team will most certainly see large numbers and will face the challenges that go with them.

        The JV Girls team will most likely and as always, endure some reformatting as some players will be drafted by Varsity.  The JV level, which is intended to prepare players for varsity play, is a tricky level to build.  The most difficult part of the JVA-JV-Varsity transition is adapting to the learning process, expectations, and work ethic.  At each level, the bar or standard is raised significantly more.  The way in which players adapt translates into how well they play at that level. 

         The JV Girls team will see some familiar faces returning, providing a solid base in which to build on.  There will surely be some new faces earning their promotions from JVA. 

          The Varsity Girls team will also see considerable change, With only 5 returning players.  Coach Driscoll will be looking to develop some chemistry this summer as well as to last season's JV squad no doubt for both replacements AND reinforcements.  It wouldn't hurt to get a nice transfer STAR either :). 
          All in all though, any player who sets their mind to it, and shows up for their summer and fall workouts could be pivotal next season.  COmbine that with Coach Driscolls tact and drive and next year could turn out to be as good as last season was if not better for varsity Girls.

Stay tuned for Boys Write-up.

        Latest news on returning players:  Last time i checked, the forward from Varsity is now predicted to miss much if not all of the 2008-2009 Season with her kneee injury.  ALSO, An upcoming and talented Guard from the JV squad, who also is Varsity Soccer player, was injured last thursday in the semi-final match.  She scored a game-tying goal - but at a great price as in doing so, was injured on the play.  Last report i received she was on crutches with Knee and Ankle braces/immobilizers.  I pray there not serious injuries but we'll see.

       Got a report that a couple of JV girls will not be returning this season.  JV squad will see a few more new faces this season from JVA as a result.
