JR. HIGH BOYS BASKETBALL FINISHES THE SEASON WITH A LOT OF HEART

by Aimee Flaming

January 30, 2012

The Jr. High boys basketball team had a successful season this year. From 6th grade to 8th grade we had 14 boys participate. The boys would come to practice every day after school with the intention of working hard, bettering themselves and the team. Two of the teams goals were to improve and have fun this season and the team feels like they had achieved those goals. The 8th graders provided strong leadership for the team and set good examples during practices and games. The 7th graders brought enthusiasm and intensity to the team and contributed greatly to A Team and B Team, and the 6th graders did a great job of learning quickly in their first year of junior high basketball and making great improvements each day.

The B team, being made up of only 6th and 7th graders had a very successful season. They went 6-2 in league, competing not only against other 6th and 7th graders from other schools, but also some 8th graders. Memorable games for the B Team include a come from behind win over Little River by one point and holding three teams below 10 points for the entire game.

The A Team also had a successful year. Despite losing two games in overtime, the A Team finished the regular season with a league record of 3-5. In the Wheat State League tournament, the A Team lost to eventual league runner up Solomon in the first round. Memorable games for the A Team include a two point win over Little River, (the first win over Little River in a number of years, and an overtime loss to regular season and league champion Wakefield.

The 6th and 7th graders are looking forward to improving over the off season and having another successful year next season, while the 8th graders are excited about High School basketball.
