Summer 2019

Week #5 (6-23-19)

Keep up the hard work Haley Kress (3rd grade;  Ackerman Elementary) and Leyton Michaelis (2nd grade; West Bay Elementary)! Haley works hard on her own in addition to her team practices to improve her shots and accuracy. Leyton regularly and consistently practices her “hot spot” shots and rebounding on her own in her driveway. Leyton’s hard work and extra practice paid off when she won all 3 contests at the end of the Elkhorn Antler BB Camp. Great job Leyton and keep up the hard work girls!

Week #4 (6-9-19)

Way to work Addison Maurer (3rd grade; Treynor Elementary) and Kate Johnson (4th grade; Sunset Hills Elementary). Both Addison and Kate spend as much time as they can working on their basketball skills outside of their normal team practice time. Kate stays late after every practice getting as many extra shots in as she can (till she gets kicked out of the gym to lock up) and Addison runs out to their hoop in the driveway to practice her basketball skills and her shot as soon as she gets home from a tough tournament in Iowa (she didn’t even take the time to change out of her uniform). Keep up the hard work girls!

Addison & Kate begged to be taken to the gym to practice and play basketball on a rainy day.

Addison running out to practice some more as soon as she gets home from a tough tournament in Iowa.

Kate practicing on her own well into the evening.

Week #3 (5-26-19)

Awesome job, Olivia Lodu (7th grade; Andersen MS) for putting in extra time working on her skills outside of team practices. Olivia practices her free throws daily with her Grandpa and is constantly recruiting her friends to play with her at the YMCA. She organizes neighborhood games and teaches the other players things that she has learned in practice. She  is constantly working on being a good teammate and helps her team with her communication on the court.

Week #2 (5-19-19)

Week #1 (4-21-19)

CONGRATULATIONS Brooke Wenninghoff (7th grade; Beadle MS) on being nominated as our Athlete of the Week by her coach!

Brooke never misses a practice and her hard work and effort does not go unnoticed while at practice and during her games. Brooke spends time on her own outside of practice working on her shot and skills whenever the weather permits. In addition, she is spending time now teaching her little brother basic basketball skills as he now expresses his own interest in playing basketball.

Her character as a good teammate has also been recognized as she encourages her teammates to keep up their own efforts on the court and treats everyone around her with respect.
