|Phoenixville coach Randy Reber|
To say Randy Reber was optimistic about his Phoenixville team’s prospects in the preseason would be a significant understatement.
“I think this probably the best outlook we have in the three years I’ve been there,” Reber said while undertaking preseason preparations for the current campaign. “Having three years in, they understand how we want to play. They’re working hard to play that way.
“I think we’ll be a competitive team.”
The Phantoms are validating their head coach’s assessment with timely play of late. With six weeks of games in the record books, they have come on strong enough to regain their past stature as a force in the Pioneer Athletic Conference.
After Friday’s 68-61 victory over Boyertown, Phoenixville is 5-4 in league play and 8-8 overall. The league win total surpasses its entire output from the 2011-12 season (4-9), as does its overall victory total from that 6-17 campaign.
