GLENVILLE, W.Va. – The start of the high school basketball season is only four days away. And maybe nowhere they look forward to the start of the season more than in Glenville.
Amy Chapman’s Gilmer County women’s basketball team forced a Single-A tournament record of 44 turnovers the last time we saw them in action. Lady Titans looked set to compete for a state championship again. But the COVID-19 pandemic had other plans.
“These players have a state of mind. They’re going to come after you, ”Chapman said when asked earlier this week that his defense was being postponed from year to year. “Right now, like I said, they just need to get in shape so they can grab you right after a shot and push. And they like this end of the game. the defensive end. It’s always good too, is that they want to play a good solid defense.
“Everyone is back, everyone is ready to go. They have been anxious for this for quite some time now.
Fast forward to almost a year after that quarter-final game in Charleston, and the Titans are motivated to seize the opportunity they missed in 2020.
“It’s just something we’re refining, in terms of motivation,” Chapman said. “Obviously everyone wants to be there at the end of their season. Our kids do the work and effort to get us there, get us back to the state tournament, and represent our program and our school there.
