CB Drifters varsity girls' basketball 2013-14 outlook

Fasten your seat belts, the winter basketball season has already begun. By the time the 2014 portion of the winter sports season arrives, the Drifters girls’ varsity basketball team’s fortitude will have been tested and proven. Long before the Christmas break, the Drifter faithful will see their beloved ladies of “Black & Gold” battle teams such as King George, North Stafford, Washington & Lee and West Point. Nothing will be easy in the new VSHL reclassification era of fast lane basketball.

After four-back-to-back winning seasons that included their first Regional Championship win (59-44 over Charles City, 2013) Drifters girls’ varsity head basketball coach Keith Dickerson may have his toughest challenge yet as a coach.

“We’re young with two seniors, two juniors, two sophomores, and five freshmen. We consider this season a reloading process rather than a rebuilding year. We have a solid group of freshmen willing to get the job done.”

With the graduation of Drifter sports standouts, and 1,000 point club legends, Karley Inscoe and Canieshia Fulcher, the impact on team leadership will fall on the shoulders on point guards Deniya Newman, Sydni Carey and Emily Parks. Over the last four years, the Drifters have competed for the Regional crown on three occasions. In addition, they have compiled a record of 40-19.

However, the challenge to repeat that success will tested; given the loss of four potential returning players who chose not to play this season, and the loss of their six foot one center, who transferred to another school, the possibilities of success could become problematic.

While many Northern Neck opponents may have lost sight of the Drifters’ interesting way of pulling a rabbit out of the hat of intangibles, Dickerson has prepared his team for all-out-war against anyone gullible enough to take them lightly. Dickerson is a chessmaster at the game of basketball, and will not hesitate to drop a bomb on the uninformed.

“Our team is reloading, growing, and the future is bright for Drifters girls’ basketball,” Dickerson said. “Although our schedule is tough, hopefully we can grow from it, and by the time districts come around, they will be well seasoned.”

As for area Northern Neck competition, the Drifters will have their hands full. With Lancaster and Northumberland lingering in the shadows of the schedule, the Drifters are confident that they have the right stuff to take on the area’s perennial powerhouses. “We’re young, and from game to game, you could see a different mentality; however, the one thing I like about this team is that we have a competitive nature,” Dickerson said. “I frequently remind them that the hardest team they will face this season is the team (fellow teammates) they play against every day in practice.”
