With dead period here, The White County High School Warrior basketball team has completed all their June schedule practices and camps.
The TSSAA sets aside the last week of June and the first week of July as the dead period when no teams can practice. Before the dead period, basketball teams can practice and can compete in 10 days of team-against-team competition.
The Warriors wrapped up their 10 days of intended camps with two varsity games, on Wednesday, at Cookeville High School, which was part of the Tennessee Tech team camp. The Warriors took on Clarkrange High School and Gordonsville High School.
The Warriors lost the first game to Clarkrange but finished off their summer games with a victory over Gordonsville.
Head basketball coach Eric Mitchell discussed his team’s play during the month of June.
“I thought our camps went well this summer,” said Mitchell. “I was very impressed with this team at times. I’ve seen a lot of good things, but we are still not to where we need to be, but that is why we do these camps. We will continue to work in the weight room and with open gyms. We have got a long way to go, but they are a good group of kids.”
When the dead period is over, basketball teams are limited as to what they can do. There can be no more team-against-team competition. As far as the month of July goes, Mitchell says his team will lift weights and have some open gyms.
