I spoke with Interboro coach Steve Lennox tonight for the preview story I’m working on, which will appear in Friday’s Delco Times.
Lennox wouldn’t give away too much in terms of strategy (I don’t blame him), but he had some complimentary things to say about Academy Park and what it means to have two Del Val teams in a district semifinal.
On facing Academy Park for the second time:
“They’re a very good team, very athletic. Jason (Vosheski) has done a great job with that program. He’s really turned it around over there. They’re a dangerous team.”
What is the key to winning this game?
“That’s hard to answer. I don’t want to give anything away. It’s tough. We know
we’re in for a tough game.”
Is it important to match AP’s energy this time around?
“That’s important, yeah. I would hope that we do. Our kids are excited to get going here. Yeah, they know (what’s on the line). They (Academy Park) were jazzed up the last time.”
Is it neat to see two Del Val teams playing each other in a district semi?
“Oh, it is. It’s a great thing. Sometimes, the Del Val doesn’t get the kind of respect it deserves, you know, from in the area. So, yeah, it’s great to see. It gives the league more credibility and more respect, I think. Absolutely.”
