2014 Sixth Grade Basketball

With a record of 10-1, the sixth grade team proved to be one of the most successful teams in sixth grade basketball history! Starting off slowly with a one- point victory against the School @ Columbia in early January, the team steam rolled the rest of the way with big victories against the likes of Allen-Stevenson, St. Hughs, Trevor Day and St. Bernards. The only hiccup was a one-point loss to Town School, which they might have won easily if their shots had just dropped.

The boys were impressive with their knowledge of the game, with understanding and learning the plays, and with being able to set the tempo of each game. But most of all they showed great sportsmanship against their opponents. In games where it was clearly one-sided, the team did not run up the score but gave opportunities for bench players to score and get good playing time. As these boys move up to the 7/8 grade teams next year, I’m looking forward to coaching the successful fifth grade team next season! – Coach David Watson
