Both 6th grade teams and the 7-8 grade girls team had games today. The 6th grade boys opened the day with a game against St. Joe Ost. The boys had a great effort and led for a good portion of the game but some hot shooting by Ost at the end allowed them to come out with a 44-33 win.
The 6th grade girls were never able to get much going in their game with St. Joe Ost. They played hard all the way but had trouble getting the ball in the basket.
The 7-8 grade girls played the second placed St. Catherine team again and had a great effort especially on the defensive end but they too came up shor

The sixth grade boys fought hard but were out-manned in their game with St. Thomas. The 7-8 grade girls also continue to show improvement but fell in their game with St. Catherine.

The 7-8 girls played St.Joseph down in Derby fell behind early, but stiff defense and that forced a numbe r of turnovers which resulted in many points resulted in them also pulling away with a 27-12 victory.

It has been nice now that the pre-season seeding jamboree is over to get back into a regular practice schedule routine. All of the teams have been working hard and getting better as well as putting in some new things for the regular season. Unfortunately it wont be long before things get hectic again and many nights will be spent touring Wichita and the surrounding areas. The game schedules are available in the events tab of this blog down on the right hand side. It should have all the games as well as school locations of where the games will be played. It also will say which color of jersey we are scheduled to wear for that game. If your child wears a t-shirt or compression shorts under their uniforms they need to be same color as the color we are wearing. Please let coaches know if your child will not be able to be at a game and also if they will not be a practice especially if they were at school that day.
