The seventh-grade girls' basketball team took their 5-3 record to Pierz Saturday, Dec. 18, to participate in the annual CMC tournament. The Cubs started the day with Howard Lake who had just handed them their third loss of the season in a closely contested game the Thursday before. The score of that game was 23-26. The girls got off to a good start in their first game of the day and never looked back, winning 24-12. The win moved them into the winners' side of the bracket with another familiar team. They faced a tough Rockford team with whom the team split during regular season play. The Rockets played a very physical game, outscoring the Cubs 14-4 at the half. We were working hard, but not getting rewarded for it in the form of points, and the opposite could be said for the Rockets as they capitalized on some very easy baskets. The Cubs battled in the second half, but still struggled to get anything going offensively, losing by a score of 25-10. The Cubs finished the day by playing EV/W for third place. The Cubs came out strong, jumping to a 25-6 halftime lead. I knew we were very tired. We expelled a lot of energy in the Rockford game, but I had no doubt that this team would come ready to play in the last game of the day and they did just that. The Cubs would go on to defeat the Eagles by a score of 34-14. With the win and the close of the day, the Cubs took home third place and have a record of 7-4.
The Cubs close out their season Tuesday at home against EV/W.
Each member of the team has worked very hard each day in practice and continues to show daily improvement. They listen and try their best. This makes for a very fun atmosphere to coach. I would like to thank the team for a very fun season and also wish them the best in the future.
The team and I would like to thank all of the parents and fans for their support at our games.
It takes a lot of effort on everyone's part to be successful.
