Basketball

This year, basketball is going to be very interesting. The coaches for the girls team are Coach Ryan and Coach Curtis. The coaches for the boys team are Coach Ouellette, Coach Gahm, and Coach Binette. We interviewed some of the players from the teams to get their opinion on the team and sport.
      Jocelyn Jaro from the girls basketball team sat down with me and I asked her the following questions. These were her answers: “Why'd you join the team?” “I played when I was younger and my friends convinced me to play this year too.”“Favorite thing about the team?” “Everyone is experienced and knows what they're doing. They play well together.”“How long have you been doing the sport?” “Five years.”“What's your opinion on the coach/coaches?” “They make practice a lot of fun and they know a lot about the sport.” “Advice for those trying out?” “Practice before the season and don't get stressed out because everyone feels the same way.” “Why would you recommend the sport?” “Because it's fun.” “Predictions for the season?” “That we will grow as a team and hopefully win some games.” All in all, we will be looking forward to a good season for girls basketball.
     When I sat down with Ben Samson I asked him the following questions, these were his answers: “Why'd you join the team?” “Because I've been played it since I was in second grade.” “Favorite thing about the team?” “The chemistry we have with each other.” “How long have you been doing the sport?” “Eight years.” “What's your opinion on the coach/coaches?” “I think Coach Ouellette is a wicked cool guy and Coach Gahm knows what he's talking about.” “Advice for those trying out?” “Do your best, and if you don't make the team, don't give up.” “Why would you recommend the sport?” “It's good and stuff.” “Predictions for the season?” “I think we're gonna go undefeated.” We will all be looking forward to a very good season in the near future.
     Both girls and boys basketball teams will have great seasons this year. We’re hoping to see a lot of wins on both of the teams records this year. The future for basketball is very bright with all the great players coming up from the middle school. The veterans of the team are helping the younger players learn the ropes and they will work together very well, very soon.
