Basketball teams have been hard at it, developing their skills and improving their techniques.
Both the boys and girls travelled across town to Gus Wetter on Jan. 8 to take on their junior high squads.
Both teams are experiencing what coaches call “building years” as the majority of their benches are made up of young players. Both teams took home the loss against the older, more experienced Gus Wetter teams.
Coaches were not discouraged though, as they saw so much improvement from their teams since the start of practices to this, their first game of the new year.
Teams took their game experiences back to their practices and worked on improving before their next game.
The basketball teams faced off against the Coronation junior teams on Jan. 22 at home.
The Knights both played good games showing off their defensive skills and their athleticism.
The girls lost by only two baskets in a close game through all four quarters. Both teams did a good job defending their end and trying hard to make their way to the hoop.
The boys also were defeated by 10 points but their coach was happy to see their strength on defence and the scoring abilities of the elementary team members.
