Dave Polechetti's resume as a basketball player on an organized team can be summarized in one line: Dunkirk High School junior varsity, 1965-66.
But whatever shortcomings he had as a player - he was admittedly too small in high school - Polechetti has more than made up for as a coach.
In fact, in terms of wins and losses, the 44-year-old has amassed some outstanding numbers in his seven years as the Fredonia Hillbillies varsity coach.
Entering today's New York State public High School Athletic Association Class B semifinal against Central Square at the Glens Falls Civic Center, Fredonia, under Polechetti's direction, has excelled.
