Centurions head coach Chris Kallock noted that a small school like Greensburg Central Catholic often has athletes that head directly to another sport in the wake of a season ending. It’s a positive thing.
“It’s about getting used to winning and competing,” Kallock said. “That’s invaluable. Most coaches encourage the athletes to play as much as they can.”
In other words, the Centurions (18-8) may have lost to Seton-LaSalle last Tuesday, but they’re taking their competitive edge to spring teams.
For example, sophomore guard Nikki Adisey will pitch for Greensburg’s softball team this spring. Fellow sophomore guard Carolyn Appleby will catch for the Centurions.
Kallock noted that Adisey and Appleby were just a couple of examples of the Greensburg Central Catholic basketball team’s athletic diversity. Many of the other hoopers go on to train for fall sports specialties. Freshman forward Leah Bisignani was actually All-Section in volleyball this school year.
Kallock did give a run-down of the GCC basketball plan from this point forward, however:
“Summer league starts in May, and I get [to coach] them again. We have a bunch of sophomores who are coming back do some serious skill building and go a couple times a week around their schedule. We’ll maybe go to team camp and join a fall league … But if there’s ever a ‘down time’ in basketball, it’s right about now.”
