G-K needs more consistency
February 1, 2013Genoa-Kingston High School
Genoa-Kingston coach Kyle Henkel has seen improvement in his team’s play throughout the season, particularly on the defensive side of the ball.
Now, the challenge is putting together an entire game free of mental lapses.
“We’re really trying to focus on the mental aspect of the game,” Henkel said. “When we go through our rough patches in a game, it’s because we just kind of mentally break down.”
Henkel has tried to make sure practices are detail-oriented and that players stay disciplined for entire practices. If they can play an entire consistent game, they have a shot at adding to their two-win season.
“We’ve seen flashes of how we can play, but we definitely need to get rid of the mental mistakes, and there are some loose ends that need to be tied up,” Henkel said. “At times, we can play with people. Every game, it seems like we have a three- or four-minute stretch of mental mistakes that really come down and hurt us at the end of the game.”
