As October rolled around and volleyball came to an end, the sounds of basketballs and squeaky shoes became the new normal in the gym. The WSMS Stallions lady basketball team had started, and tryouts were in full swing. This season there was a completely new staff of coaches; Molly Clark and Brett Heitschmidt for 8th grade, and Allie Vore and Kelly Colwell for 7th grade. The coaching staff was very excited to see what the new season had to bring, and the talent that would develop in building new team relationships.
Both the 7th and 8th grade teams are small with lots of talent and lots of girls who have never played basketball before; but now in week 7 of our season, you wouldn't have guessed this was their first year! Unfortunately, the scores have not fallen where we would have wanted them to but we are gaining confidence and improving every week. This group of girls brings so much energy to the court and we have fun, which is so important.
The Stallions' season continues as we take on Paola tonight starting at 4pm with 8th grade at home and JV on the road, so make sure you come out and support your WSMS lady Stallions basketball!
