Drifter varsity girls’ basketball preview

Ready or not the winter sports season is here. After two scrimmages with Great Mills and Middlesex, the Drifters girls varsity basketball team is ready to take on the best in area basketball. In fact, on Wednesday, Nov. 30, the Drifters will host King & Queen at the Drifterdome for their regular season opener.

While the Drifters have lost three key members of the starting lineup to graduation - 1,000 point club and All-Regional player Melissa Turner, and the scrappy combo of Danielle Galloway and Destiny Smith - they gain a core group of athletes who have the capability of running the floor for four straight quarters without taking a breather. “I like the overall team speed,” Drifter varsity girls head coach Keith

Dickerson said. “It’s greater than it was last year, and with the addition of newcomers they are fast, and know the game. It’s not so much teaching this season, I am doing more coaching.”

Veteran players returning to the lineup this season include Jennay Shanklin, Karley Inscoe, Caniesha Fulcher, Jomeisha Fulcher, Careley Graves, Jasmine Harris and Tanesha Mcdowney. Within the structure of the Drifters offense is the not-so-hidden factor of three-point specialist Inscoe, and the feisty all-out defensive skills associated with Graves.

Fast break situations are a common attribute to Drifter basketball. Each member is in sync with converting steals into lay-ups. From the moment of the tip-off opposing teams better lace-up tight, because the pace of the game will go from zero to sixty in a flash.

New players who have the potential to change the complexion of a game are Emily Parks and Billie Gould. Both Parks and Gould helped the junior varsity team post the best overall record in the Northern Neck last season.

The Drifters also have depth. Armed with players who can fill a void from an injured athlete or foul related issue, Dickerson will have the convenience of substituting players capable of scoring crucial points, without missing a beat on defense.
After an alarmingly successful 2010-2011 season, that featured an 8-2, 17-6 record, and a post-season regional berth, every team in the Northern Neck District will be keeping a close watch on the Drifters. As the Drifters journey into the season, every game will be a battle,  especially with Northumberland, Lancaster, Washington & Lee, Rappahannock, and Essex armed with strong program. The district this season will not be an walk in the park for anyone.
