The 7th and 8th grade girls had a wonderful bas- ketball season! With only seven girls everyone got a lot of playing time. There were even two girls who came out who have never played before! All the girls improved SO much since November. I had fun seeing them improve and work hard together. One of my favorite memories from our season was our last game. We played at home against Des Moines Christian and this was probably our best game all season! Every girl contributed to that win. They rebounded hard, finished their shots strong, and played tough defense. The girls were so excited after that game and felt so good about playing well against good competition. Throughout the season we memorized John Wooden’s 7 Point Creed which includes: be true to yourself, help others, make each day your masterpiece, drink deeply from good books especially the Bible, make friendship a fine art, build a shelter against a rainy day, pray for guidance and give thanks for your blessings every day. Thanks for supporting us this season!

This years boy’s basketball team consisted of 15 boys: eight 8th graders and seven 7th graders. This was a year of firsts for our team. This was our fist year in the IHSAA union which allowed us to again play teams from our area schools. This was also our first year with two boys’ teams that played on the same night. Some of our games were split 8th grade and 7th grade while others were A and B teams. This allowed all of our boys to get plenty of playing time to gain experience and develop their skills. Kudos to Shannon Semini, Athletic Director, for arranging a full, competitive schedule. Thank you to the parents, grandparents, friends and teachers who came out to watch all of our teams at OSCI; our home games were very well attended. We would also like to thank those that drove the team bus, manned the scorer’s table and refereed our games. Overall, it was a successful year and we were grateful for the opportunity to coach and get to know these boys from our school. -Coaches Bryan and Katie Mulder
