Let the Basketball Begin! December 2, 2016 by Gabriella Ruiz
MS 447’s basketball team works really hard and well together. They practice effortlessly and are lightning on the court. Our team is excited to play ball.
When 447’s team comes together to practice, they do it well. During practice they warm-up their muscles and dribble, then shoot and score! Everyone on the basketball has different positions on the court to fit them best. All thanks to their amazing coaches, Mr. G for the boys and Mrs. Grau for the girls.
All of the team’s magic happens in 447’s gym. That’s where the team tryouts were, which is when each player used their very best basketball skills. This year’s tryouts were on October 26. It was a very special day for our basketball teams.
447’s basketball team is for all of the team players, athletes, and everyone who wants to do something new. Most of the members (boys and girls) joined the 447 family because they’ve been on a team in the past, want to work with a team, or have always marveled the sport. From the boy’s team Ryan O’Connell says, “I joined basketball because I’ve always been good at it and I needed to do sports afterschool.” From the girl’s team, Nora Loftus states,“ I joined the team because I wanted to experience a new sport and learn how to work better as ateam.”
Their games are on numerous days throughout the rest of the year, so be on the lookout for the next game. And the next time you enter the gym, be sure to think of our fantastic team at their finest.
