Before Thursday, January 25th, the 9th Grade Boys Basketball Team was undefeated. The team was 12-0 coming into the game against Hempfield. That same week the team beat Trinity on Tuesday, and then beat Laurel Highlands with there whole school watching. The team was confident coming into this game, they also beat Hempfield in the Christmas tournament at LH also.
The boys came into the game ready, but Hempfield was also ready. We were only winning by a couple points when halftime came. The second half was a battle for the team. We ended up losing by a couple points at the end. Mr. Kaufman told the team to hold their heads up high, because they were only 12-1. They also would have a game against Thomas Jefferson the next day.
The Thomas Jefferson game was a great battle. Both teams were competitive in this game, the game came down to foul shots. The team won and now they’re 13-1. They ended the season 15-1, the best record yet for the basketball team.
