8th Grade Girls End Season At Home

Oskaloosa Indians

Yesterday evening our 8th grade girls had their final middle school basketball game of their career. For the first game our girls played a tight one with a good Norwalk team. We came even with the Warriors in the second half but could not pull away. The girls went back and forth but came up just short at the end of the game with a score of 35-30. Our leading scorer was Aubree Blanco with 13 points and she added in 8 rebounds. In our last practice of the year Coach Kaisand gave the 7th and 8th grade girls a tremendous speech. The moral of the speech was that these two grades at the middle school level have something special. We are all very excited for what the future holds for Oskaloosa Indian basketball.

Faith DeRonde: 5 points and 6 rebounds
Aubree Blanco: 13 points and 8 rebounds
Macie Krier: 4 points, 3 steals and 4 rebounds
Gracce Flarhety: 8 points and 5 rebounds
Addison Gerard: 6 rebounds and 2 steals
Addi Carter: 2 rebounds and 2 steals

The second and third games of the night were also extremely tight contests. The B team ended up becoming victorious once again by a score of 24-19. Sage Adam put on a stellar performance by scoring 8 points, grabbing 5 rebounds, and sneaking away with 7 steals. This groups attention to detail and game awareness was displayed all year long. Coach Knoot and I believe this is really a trickle down effect from the first group of girls and their willingness to compete. Holistically, this is a deep team with many different girls with special abilities and ways to contribute to the future success of our girls basketball program. The C team also played a close game but fell short by a score of 12-6. At the end of the day, Coach Knoot and I are very excited to what is to come for these girls and the game of basketball. Go Indians!
