4th/5th Grade Girls Win Championship!

R. Jones
The girls put up a strong performance against Wise School to finish their season as champions of the 5th Grade Varsity 2 Girl's Basketball Division! Not only are the girls champions of their division, but they didn't lose a single game this season. The girls demonstrated their developed understanding of basketball with passes to different combinations of players, with every team member getting the opportunity to touch the ball. They also vastly improved their shooting and rebounding, scoring an astounding 36 points, even with their patience to share the ball and pass to everyone.
Ava S. had an opportunity to be an assistant coach for a quarter, including calling a timeout and drawing up a successful play for a shot. The girls started with very basic knowledge of basketball and have ended the season understanding how to protect the ball and create opportunities to score. A big congratulations to Ava B., Ava S., Laila V., London I., Luna K., Tate L., and our two last-minute subs, Channing B. and Zoe B. Great job ladies! And congratulations to Coach Van Vleck and Coach Jones!
