A winter sports spotlight

Updated: Feb 12

Being one of the earliest forms of entertainment, sports have a tight grasp on the world. Its importance is clear in the way our modern society still adores these activities; our school is no exception.

Can you believe we’re already halfway through the semester? It feels like just yesterday, we were enjoying football, cheer, drill, girls tennis, girls volleyball, and cross country in the fall sports season. The winter athletic season had also begun with its presence trickling into this semester. Now, since the 2023 spring semester has started, we will begin to see spring sports come into play. (Get it?)

While football is the sport that is most associated with school sports, it isn’t the only sport that deserves fame. There are tons of other amazing teams at our school. Here are the winter sports that are currently in action.

This article was heavily interview-based, so please keep in mind, some things may be out of date, as the sports season has continued on since I conducted the interviews for each sport. I’d also like to give a special thank you to all the team captains I spoke to! Because of you, this article is possible.

Boys Basketball

First of all, we have the boys varsity basketball team who has had an awesome season so far. Thanks to their great teamwork and chemistry, they were not only undefeated, but they finished first in their league! Co-captains Brooklyn and Luke describe their team as a brotherhood. In the near future, they hope to win city championships and continue to play the best they can.

Like the varsity team, our JV boys basketball team has had a good season. They have, and continue to enjoy playing together, as they create memories at each game and practice. Team captains William and Ramses had the goal of being league champions, and with their hard work, they were able to meet it! Congratulations to them!

Girls Basketball

As of now, the varsity girls basketball team has had a great season. By playing well together and working hard at practice, they’ve greatly improved their skills, allowing them to score higher at each game, and of course, win. A team captain of this team, Madison, said that everyone has a great bond and is really just best friends. Finishing as undefeated League Champions, they hope to win division one, play their best at playoff games, and make open championships.

Co-captains of the girls JV basketball team Ana and Melanie agree that their season has been going pretty well. While they enjoy their games and practice, a highlight of the season has been forming connections with new and familiar faces. They are like one big family; they joke around with each other, but also play very well together. In the future, they hope to keep working to improve their skills.
