Cagers work out kinks in scrimmage

Cagers spent the day after Thanksgiving playing scrimmages against a few teams.
They still have a few more weeks until their first game, but the scrimmages helped them find a few kinks to get out.
‘I wasn’t comfortable with how we played,? said Clarkston Boys Varsity Basketball Coach Dan Fife.
‘We will use it for what we need to have a strong season.?
The Wolves have 11 returners from last year’s team.
‘We have the leadership, knowledge and experience coming back,? said Fife. ‘They will set the tone of how games are suppose to be played.?
Last year the boys ended the season with only three losses. They won the OAA I league title and their 15th District Championship.
‘We have been regional winners the last six straight year, so we are looking to win it again,? said Fife.
Right now he is concentrating on getting the team for their most important goal – to be the best they can be.
Another goal is for the boys to keep focus and to just compete. The boys first game is at Utica High School on Dec. 10
‘The game will set the tone for the season and help us to get ready to compete,? said Fife. ‘I expect to get everybody ready and give it our best shot.?
Chris Canada, Jordan Clark, Max Collins, and Chris Young have been added to the roster for their first varsity season.
Fife expects the returners to get the new players ready and set the tone of how the Wolves team should be. Leading the team will be Brandon Pokley, Brandon Verlinden and Matt Kamieniecki.
‘Pokley knows what I will say and ask for,? said Fife.
Also returning are Luke Prudhomme, Tom Ronk, Tyler Scarlett,Tom Staton, Matt Calvano, Jonathan Baenziger, Jared Lawrence and Shane Kouri.
The boys will play at Carman-Ainsworth on Dec. 16 before they have their home opener that Friday against Flint-Northern.
