This school year brought 14 basketball teams to SMS. We had six girls teams and eight boys teams from grades 3-8. There were roughly 135 athletes for basketball this year. Thank you to all the coaches for volunteering your time and knowledge so these students can learn the game.
The third grade age is a difficult age since they are playing with fourth graders as well but our third graders competed greatly and won a couple of regular season games. They eventually fell in the tournament but not without putting up a fight. These young boys and girls have a lot to be proud of and will be stronger next season.
Our fourth grade basketball teams also competed greatly and won many games in the regular season. We had one fourth grade boys team and one fourth grade girls team. Both teams represented SMS well before falling in the tournament. Again, not without a fight.
Fifth grade is similar to third grade and is a hard task to win many games because of the competition playing against sixth graders. It is even more difficult with rule changes (now playing regulation basketball). Our teams did a great job this year competing in this division. They will be tough to beat next season.
We had two sixth grade teams this year. One for each gender. Both teams had an outstanding season. The sixth grade girls finished fourth in the regular season out of twelve teams and the boys finished second in the regular season and in the tournament before falling in the Championship Game. The sixth grade boys brought home two trophies for both of their second place finishes. The sixth grade girls lost in the semi-finals of their tournament.
There was one seventh grade girls and one seventh grade boys team this year. Both teams had successful seasons. The seventh grade boys team finished as the ninth seed in the tournament out of fifteen teams and the seventh grade girls team finished eighth out of ten teams and won a playoff game before falling to the eventual champion. The seventh grade boys and seventh grade girls teams will be really tough to beat next season as they try for a championship.
Our eighth grade class brought together three teams. Two teams for the boys and one team for the girls. The boys teams were very even and both won a lot of games. One of our boys teams finished sixth in the regular season while the other boys team finished eighth in the regular season out of fifteen teams. Both teams won a playoff game before falling in the next round. These boys had a great run through SMS in the years they played. The girls team had a pretty good regular season coming in seventh place out of ten teams and
winning their first playoff game by forty, then beating the number two seed in the tournament by twenty points before eventually falling to the number three seed in the semi-finals by six points in a packed house on a Friday night. These girls finished out their SMS career in style.
