Returning this year….

Only 57 days until the start of basketball season!  We have reason to be optimistic this year.  Last year we were coming in very green.  We had 1 starter returning, 1 reserve coming back and everybody else was new.  We had  a rather steep learning curve.  We competed to the end, losing to Velva in the District tournament by only a few points.  Velva went on to beat Drake/Anamoose and advance to the region tournament....

Basketball season came to an abrupt end on Friday the 15th.  We started the district tournament out against #1 seeded Rugby.  I was extremely happy with the way the kids opened the game.  We came out intense, and executed things great!  Rugby is such a good team that a team cannot afford to relax one bit against them.  I feel like we exhaled after the first quarter and relaxed.  Rugby pounced on us and never relented....

District Tournament Week

Well its here.  District tournaments start on Thursday.  We play Rugby at 3:00 pm in Rugby.  It’s the time of year we have prepared for all year.  Even though we are the #8 seed of 8 teams, I feel comfortable knowing we can compete with most every team in the district.  It’s not about just hustle and hard work at this time of year, its about hustle, hard work and most importantly…execution.  The...
