The 7th-grade boys' basketball team finished the season in an exhilarating, storybook fashion, pulling off a big win against Mitchell that went right down to the wire. About half of their games had close finishes, so it was nice to see it all come together for a happy ending to the season. The season itself was a perfect journey. The challenge at the start of the season was pulling through near the end of a close, one-possession game. As the season progressed, they learned what it takes to pull out a win when it gets tough. These young men learned to have sportsmanship among each other and to take responsibility for their mistakes. Coach Malone said he believed this is when the season started to make its turn. Coach Malone remarked, “I think the biggest improvement as a team was our ability to become just that, a team. At the beginning of the season, we were a bunch of individuals, and it took a lot of work to break those habits. Along the way, we learned that if four guys are doing their job, and one isn't, then we won't find success. We used the analogy of a fist where a hand with all five fingers clenched tightly together creates the strongest fist. If you try to strike something with one or two fingers pointing straight out, it's not nearly as powerful, and those one or two fingers aren't going to feel too good either!” One of the most important things the boys learned was how to deal with feedback and how to change the situation when it’s tough. Even though the boys ended their season at 4-13, they focused on the unsung difference-maker when athletes progress through their athletic career–the intangibles. When a group of young men get to the varsity level and possess the intangibles, they can do some great things. These boys will look to continue to grow in preparation for everything that 8th grade throws at them. The player that progressed the most down the stretch of the season was Warren Howe. Warren made huge leaps and bounds, always working hard at practice, and that earned him multiple spots in the starting lineup near the end of the season. Coach Malone stated, “I enjoyed every moment of coaching these guys this season. It was a heck of a journey, and while there were plenty of ups and downs, I think the experiences that were created made it worth every minute. I hope to have had a fraction of the impact on these kids that they had on me. We learned alongside each other each and every day, and I wouldn't have traded it for anything in the world!” Despite a tough season, Coach Malone hopes that ending the season on a high note is something the team can carry with it moving forward. “Along the way, we learned it doesn't really matter how badly you say you want it, and it doesn't matter if you want to win. Everyone wants to win. What really matters is if you are willing to do what it takes to win and if you can make the winning plays in those situations where the game is tight. It took the entirety of the season to figure everything out, and it all came together on the very last night of the season when we beat Mitchell by one point!” said Coach Malone.
