Middle School Basketball- First Week

The middle school basketball team got off to an impressive start to the season going 2-1 in our first week of action. We have already matched last year’s win total. We have had some big games from 8th graders J’Den Robertson and Ethan Freeman.

The first win for the season came Tuesday, December 5th against Hammond’s 7th grade team, 41-21. The Spartans, who were led by Robertson with 19 points and

Freeman with 12 points, came out of the gates strong. Our next game was against a strong Wilson Hall squad who beat us 34-17. Again, we had a strong game from Robertson with 12 points. And then, this past Saturday, we played Hammond’s 7th grade team again and won 35-29. Robertson again led us in scoring with 15 and Freeman right behind with 13.

This year’s team is working hard, playing hard, and playing together. Other players that are contributing with defense and hustle are Colby Johnson, Hunter Warnell, Darnell Rakestraw, Derrick Bailey, Nick Paolillo, Chase Roebuck, Gabe Larsen, Alex Tate, Nicholas Hogan, Ruhi Patel, Kaleb Eldred, Kameron Genitl, Christopher Kissam, Calvin, Wu, Dereck Mulder, and Patrick Brooks.
