The Westside School fifth grade girls’ basketball team got their first win last Saturday, beating St. Edward 9-6. The defense was lights out all game, constantly pressuring the ball, helping when a teammate got beat, and doing their best to get rebounds against a much taller team. All six girls who played, played great; Lucy, our female Athlete of the Week, really stood out. She scored the first three points of the game, including a swished free throw. She played awesome defense, helped out Gwyneth with ball handling, and overall played a great floor game. The girls have improved so much since the beginning of the season, and they’re a lot of fun to watch right now.
The Westside School sixth grade grade boys team played a great game last Sunday, beating St. Francis 34-22. The team is playing great together, and are led by point guard, Kai. Kai, our Male Athlete of the Week, is a true point guard. He is an excellent dribbler, has great vision and passing skills, knocks down the mid-range jumper really well, and can get to the basket. Kai plays excellent defense, and finishes well in the full court. Our boys are currently in second place in our division, and finish the season this Sunday, January 25 beginning at 2:30 at Assumption.
Congratulations Lucy and Kai!!!
