Girls Get Early Start to Basketball Season with Open Gym

Every Wednesday, from 5:30-6:30 p.m, the girls basketball team has been holding open gyms in the high school lower gym. Varsity Head Coach Donovan Crews helps the girls with plays and answers questions about the upcoming season while the girls split up and scrimmage for an hour.

All junior high and high school girls had the opportunity to attend, allowing the coaches to get a good idea of what the season will look like, and giving some opportunities for some extra help.

“Our open gyms have been going really well. Our attendance has been great, but I didn’t expect anything different out of this group. I think a lot of the kids are excited that the season is just around the corner. We’ve put in a lot of work this offseason and had a really good summer.  Hopefully all of that will carry right into this season and make it an exciting year,” said Crews.

Open gyms end today and the first official practice begins on Oct. 18. If you are interested in playing this year, email crewsd@paoli.k12.in.us for more information about the program.
