The freshman boys basketball team played against the Valparaiso Vikings on Tuesday, Nov. 24. Family and friends filled the bleachers to support the boys in the first game of the season.
“[I think the game went] well, I feel like we played pretty decent. We were playing good defense,” Bryce Scherwin (9) said.
The boys beat Valparaiso with a final score of 43-31. The boys felt prepared enough for their first game.
“The outcome of the game was great, I felt like we were fully prepared. It’s always great to start the year with a win,” Evan Hand (9) said.
There was no waiver between the first and second half; halftime did not stop their momentum as they pushed towards the end.
“[The moment that stood out the most was] in the final minutes when we came together as a team,” Hand said.
Teamwork was a key factor in Tuesday’s game which contributed with their first win. The boys still think they have some things to work on.
“We played well as a team. We can make some improvements but as time goes on we will get better, but overall it was a great win,” Josh Graziano (9) said.
Their next home game is Monday, Nov. 30.
