is finally here at RCMS!!!! We have been waiting for quite some time
now, ever since the football team was over. Basketball is a really good
curricular activity for middle schoolers because once they get to
high school, they at least have some experience if they join or make the
basketball team. On April 18th is the Student vs Staff basketball game.
Last year the girls basketball won against the lady teachers and for
the guys they weren't so lucky, basketball is currently over until the Student vs Staff game.
Students mostly prefer basketball over any sport. They say that
basketball is a better sport at times to because on rainy days they go
into the gym and play knockout, four on four, horse, and just a regular
game of basketball. I have asked four eighth graders what are their thoughts about basketball,
Ericka said that " Some people use basketball as a way to clear their
head and let go of things. Its also fun just playing your heart out and
pushing yourself to succeed."
Taron said " I like basketball because its my favorite sport and fun."
Emily told me " Basketball is great because I get to hangout with friends and participate with them."
Jordan said " Basketball is fun because it might get me somewhere in life and I'm very good at it.
now you know what people think about basketball. Everyone has their
different opinion on this type of sport. Basketball may be something to
clear your head out or just to play with friends, but in the end, its
fun to play. I encourage everyone who hasn't played, or tried
basketball to just mess around with it, and if you like, continue
playing it. People think that basketball is a hard sport, and to some
people it actually is, but if you push yourself you can become really
good at it you never know. Like I always say "You never know what you
like until you try it".
