The second- and third-grade Junior Cubs just completed a five-week basketball program. During the five weeks, the players learned different basketball fundamentals, such as ball handling, dribbling, passing, shooting, and teamwork, among others. The Junior Cubs performed at halftime of the boys' varsity game against Pierz Friday, Feb. 19.
Coach Kuechle and Coach Klein would like to thank all the Jr. Cubs for their hard work during the program and their parents for allowing them to be a part of Junior Cubs. The coaches would also like to thank all of the girls' and boys' basketball players who helped with the program.
