Season Recap: Grade 7 & 8 Basketball
The Grade 7 & 8 Basketball team spent the season building on skills they had learned in previous seasons while integrating new players at the same time. The open participation policy at ISI allows students to try new things, and many students took the opportunity to try basketball for the first time.
“My favorite memory from the season was the excitement across the whole team when we won a game,” said Grade 8 player Myles Maddox. “My biggest goal I accomplished this season was improving my shooting form.”
All players had different skills they wanted to improve, spanning from form to communication. The student athletes put in hard work all season to grow as athletes and work together as a team. Every player showed improvement in different ways throughout the season.
“The work they put in will benefit our 8th graders transitioning to our high school team next year, and our team next year is poised for a big leap forward,” Assistant Coach Zach Haley said. “These student athletes are laying the foundation for what we believe will be a program that will experience a lot of on-the-court success.”
