Congrats to the Girls 7th Grade G Team for coming in 2nd place in the GCC Basketball Tournament!
Even though there are two team per grade we can't stress enough how much they are all part of one program! Even though they competed against each other several times this season, in the end they all come together.
Break out the Windex cause this team loves to clean the glass!
No offensive player is breaking through this line of 7th grade Mustangs!
It looks like Nadia Zaripheh might be singing mid-game...we'd all be singing too after getting a convincing win over a rivalry team in the playoffs!
Sidney Butera with a flawless looking three pointer that would haven been good from Pearl Road, en route to the Girls 8th Grade W teams 4th place finish in the GCC tourney.
When our teams are defending everyone better lookout or they might get trampled by Mustang stampede!
I like to call Nathan Rodak "The Hurricane" because he is always flying so fast up and down the court. He moves so quick it is often hard to keep up as evident in this photo. Almost the entire shot is blurry!
Izzy Lapp with a big three en route to the Girls 7th Grade W teams 2nd place finish in the GCC tournament.
Coach Fisher tasked his team in recent weeks to clean up their boxouts on shot attempts. Judging by this pic I'd say they responded nicely!
Another flawless day in the office for the cheer squad!
It was a long final week for the MS basketball teams as they wrapped up the season. In the end there was some hardware that returned to SMS, there were some tough losses but most importantly there was continuous growth for everyone involved in the program!
