Another fun rec season of basketball has come and gone! All three played and all three had fun and none of the three won very much! ha!
Samantha’s team was the Blue Sparks and they sure brought hustle and heart to each game. Samantha is a great little, aggressive basketball player. She may not have the height, but she has the hustle and would get in there and fight for the ball. She consistently scored a basket or a free throw each game. I was really proud of her this year because she really didn’t know anyone on her team but still made the very best of it and loved playing!
Gotta love 3rd grade – look at the height difference between Samantha and 23!
It’s the most fun when your teachers come to your game!
Go Blue Sparks!
Spencer’s team was Texas with Coach Sleeper and crackerjack assistant Coach Brown! They played hard but kinda had a rough season – I think they lost 4 games but either 1 or 2 points! They played great games but ultimately the shots didn’t go their way too many times. Spencer balled out and was a great leader on his team. I was really proud of him and the way he handled himself all season. He’s a good sport and a good kid. Texas really ended up peaking at the right time though. They made an impressive run in the playoffs all the way to the Final Four!! Go Texas!!
Go Texas! Hook ’em!
Maxwell played 7th grade rec basketball and it’s pretty fun – the teams are coached by 9th graders and there’s basically no practices and plenty of street ball antics. Maxwell’s team was the orange Traffic Cones – they had style but not much chance at winning! ha! Their “A” player was gone for a majority of the games playing golf. Maxwell stepped up and really lead the team pretty well but they didn’t pull off the win too often. Maxwell then ended up getting hurt and wasn’t able to play in their final playoff game so the Cones really didn’t stand a chance. It was still a fun season though!
Go Traffic Cones!
Fun rec basketball season all around!
