Good games by Sixth Grade teams today

Both of the sixth grade teams were in action today. Each continues to show improvement and give great efforts in their games.

The girls team was the first be in action taking on the first place team from St. Thomas who entered the game with a 6-1 record. The girls were able to take an early lead and then gave a great effort on defense causing many turnovers by St. Thomas. They ended up cruising to a 25-10 victory. The girls will have their postponed game with Resurrection left before they go into post-season action. It will be a 5:30 game on February 8 at Resurrection against Resurrection

The boys played a great game as well and had a back and forth first half and a good start in the second but had a hard time dealing with the St. Catherine big man and fell 31-21. The boys played very hard the whole game and had quite a few shots just rim out. This was their final game of the regular season and will be off until the post-season tournament which is scheduled to begin on February 10

Eagles in Action Three Times Today

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

Next games for teams is on Tuesday. The 6th grade girls play Resurrection at Resurrection at 5:30. The 7-8 boys have a 7:30 game against St. Anne down at St. Mary Derby

The lull before the storm

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.
