The Halifax County High School boys’ varsity basketball program has struggled recently, but the Comets might have enough experience returning to make things interesting in the Western Valley district this winter.

Comets reviewing the basics

Conditioning and cutdowns took up almost all of Lynn Ramage’s time for the first two days of the Halifax County High School varsity boys’ basketball practice Monday.

Comets have full winter schedule

Four Comet winter sports programs have their schedules in place already, with HCHS girls’ basketball opening its campaign Dec. 2 against Gretna.

Lady Comets look good

The Halifax County High School girls’ varsity basketball team started winter drills Monday, and Matt McCargo had good news from the outset.

Comets hope to implement run and gun in hoops offense

HCHS varsity boys basketball coach Lynn Ramage hopes to incorporate at least basic elements of the up-tempo North Carolina offense into the Comet scheme this winter. Ramage, working with head jayvee coach Chris Johnson, is constantly trying to find ways to improve Comet basketball, which has suffered a bit in recent seasons.

Basketball hitting the road

The HCHS varsity boys’ basketball team has ambitious non-district action planned this winter, including an early January trip to the Verizon Center in Washington, DC, where the Comets will play prior to an NBA game on that date.

Halifax County varsity basketball big man Russell White may have an opportunity to earn playing time soon at Bridgewater College. The Generals, part of the ODAC and an NCAA Division III school, had significant losses in the low post this season. White hopes to work hard and make an impact quickly in the ODAC. Bridgewater’s program appears to be on the rise. The Generals finished 15-12 overall last season and reached the ODAC tournament semifinals before losing to Washington and Lee. Bridgewater finished 10-6 in the regular season, the most wins since the 2004-05 season. Don Burgess, the Generals’ coach, is starting his second season.
