The harsh winter weather earlier this week cost the area’s prep basketball teams some valuable practice time, but Bellefontaine coach Henry Stolly found a silver lining in the time off.
“Perhaps the extra few days off the court provided our team the mental rest we need to embark on a busy January schedule,” said Stolly. “The players should be well-rested, healthy and anxious to bounce back after a disappointing loss to Tecumseh.”
Bellefontaine is coming off its worst outing of the season, a 61-44 defeat to the Arrows last Friday that snapped the Chiefs’ six-game winning streak.
The Chiefs will only get a couple of practices in before Friday’s trip to Stebbins. However, Stolly feels like the break came at the right time.
“We are looking at the weather layoff as a positive thing for our team and an opportunity to re-focus on what we need to do in our final first-round CBC matchup with Stebbins,” said the Chieftain head coach.
