Spartans prepared to take next step up
Placeholder Image
There was almost a sense of relief in Will Rice’s voice as he talked about Camden Military Academy’s game with visiting East Clarendon this afternoon at Spartan Field.Rice, the Spartans’ head coach, was no so much exhaling about today’s 4 p.m. contest as much as he was glad that his team was finally able to get a game under their belt. After having its scheduled opener cancelled, CMA lost its debut to North Central, 34-7, last Friday in Boonetown.Now, Rice said, the challenge is for his team to learn from their mistakes and build on the good things they did against the Knights.“The old saying is that you make your greatest improvement from the first to the second game so, we’re hoping that’s going to happen here,” he said.CMA came out of its first game with a few bumps and bruises, while starting linebacker/running back Brandon Crandall sustained a dislocated right elbow which he was icing in a bucket during Tuesday’s practice. His playing status for the pairing with the Wolverines is questionable, at best.
