They’re playing Basket-ball

Swish, swish, swish went the ball! Not every team can win, and not every team can be the best, but this team tries really hard to get their very first win this season. Tons of people love to tune in to watch their favorite team on the T.V., but with the Boys Garner Yearlings it’s all real action. “Sometimes when I’m nervous it gets in the way of my playing and I don’t want anyone to see,” said Ian Gonzales (7). He feels like his team tries way too hard to win, but says, “It’s okay because we always learn from our mistakes.”

After their games they practice and practice and practice to be stronger and they don’t ever give up. “Im really confident that my next game I’ll win even, though I lost my previous game, but you just don’t give up,” said Isaiah Perkins (7). Giving up is probably the last thing you would ever want to think about, when you’re feeling like you’re just not going to win because you just have to believe that you can do anything. “Never forget who you represent, and always try hard!” said B-team coach, Mr. Richardson of the boys basketball team,who is an amazing coach as well a fantastic teacher. He feels disappointment when his team has lost, “Because they work so hard to win, and I want them to feel good that they have won a game,” said Richardson. Lots of our students from our school come out to support their very own Yearlings every Thursday and give all their hope so they can get their big win. Coaches Rodriguez (A), Richardson (B), and Nunez (GO) appreciate all the dedication and support from the other students, parents, and mostly the faculty who helps the boys keep their grades up and their minds open.

Their cool and fly guys off and on the court with some fresh moves, who are great role models for sixth graders and who look up to the 8th grade team. All these guys need is to believe that they can do what ever they want with the help

of their coaches and other teammates, who can probably give good advice to one another on anything needed. So go out every Thursday if possible and support all boys Garner Yearlings, because every student hopes for the team to win in each and every way.

Basketball Starting?


Basketball season is here and just around the corner. Garner Yearlings did well in Football, but now it’s Basketball time. Hopefully we won’t get as many injuries like we did in Football. I asked two boys who are on the Basketball team about how they feel to be on it and if they think they’re good enough. “It’s fun and a good experience, it could help me get my muscles and everything & yeah I think I’m good enough to be on the team” Joey Fiel (8) I asked another source about how he feels about basketball & if he thinks he is good enough for it too. “It’s fun, like it’s good to know I’m on the team because I try my best & yeah, I believe I’m good at basketball because I have been playing ever since I was 7 years old,” said Joseph Zertuche (8). Everyone is very excited to see if our Garner Yearling 7th & 8th grade boys’ will lead us to victory!
