Basketball scrimmages: Culbreth pleased with PCHS progress, PCMS squads roll to win
Looking to rebuild a roster that lost five seniors, Polk County head girls basketball coach Craig Culbreth is simply looking for daily improvement from his Wolverines at this point as they gear up for the 2013-14 season.
Culbreth saw exactly that in Thursday’s home scrimmage with Chapman, an exhibition largely controlled by Polk County. No score was kept, but the Wolverines had the better of the action most of the evening.
“From the last scrimmage to this scrimmage we improved a lot,” Culbreth said. “We used our quickness well. I thought we passed the ball up the floor well and started hitting people a little better.
“It’s going to be a learning process for us this year. We have a very young team, just two seniors and we’ve got a ninth grader on the team. It’s going to be a learning experience.”
Polk County will have one more week to continue that process as both of the team’s regular-season games slated for next week will be rescheduled due to the football team’s playoff progress. The season opener is now set for Nov. 25 at East Henderson.
