GIRLS BASKETBALL UPDATE

Girls have been working hard everyday in practice on both the physical part and mental aspect of basketball. We came back from Christmas break with the Sparta tournament where we lost a hard fought game to Verona by 4 and then we were able to defeat Sparta and Pierce City to claim the consolation championship. The following week we defeated a tough Spokane team, and fell just a little short to Dora while playing our 5th game in 8 days.

Team Sponsors Family for Christmas

The girls basketball team raised over $600 for a local family for Christmas and were able to supply a local family with much needed gifts for the children, a full Christmas meal, as well as gift for the parents. The girls worked hard to raise the money and made thoughtful purchases while shopping for the family. A lot of effort, thoughtfulness, and caring went into their mission. They are certainly a group to be proud of when it comes to their humility, caring, and passion to help other people in need. I'm very proud to be their coach.

BOYS BASKETBALL UPDATE

Varsity record: 3-11 JV record: 8-3


We have competed well in stretches. We still are striving to be more consistent with taking care of the ball, rebounding and overall defensive execution. When the wins aren't comng as often as you like, the main thing we can do is to keep trying and to focus on the team. To our guys credit, they seem to be doing both. We still have several games in front of us and will strive each practice and game to improve and compete as hard as we can.

Fifth graders were given a mixture of sand, salt, rocks, and iron filings. Each group of students had to come up with a step by step plan to separate each component of the mixture. Then, students were required to test their plan to ensure it worked and was the most efficient process for separating the mixture.
