There will be only one coaching change at French Camp for the 2019-20 school year. Polly Levert was promoted from assistant to head girls basketball coach, replacing Priscilla Anderson, who moved into administration,
“We have a great group of coaches,” said athletic director Rusty McKnight. “They work well together. We feel really good about all of our coaches.”
Levert had 28 years experience coaching basketball, most recently seven years as junior high coach at Choctaw Central, when she came to French Camp last year to teach math. “When I got here, our athletic director, Rusty McKnight, asked me about working with the head coach, Priscilla Anderson.”
She is excited about her team. “We have a good group of young kids. We have a lot of potential.”
French Camp had only one senior this year, leading scorer Madison Klein.
Levert is not tied to any particular playing style. “You have to adjust to the personnel,” she said.
