Wolverines … never ever, ever give up. It’s their nature!! And that is exactly how our Grade 6 Boys Basketball Team responds to any and all challenges.
Words from the crowd … “Exciting to watch” …
“Their enthusiasm is contagious” …
“You can tell by their faces, they are determined” …
” Those kids show amazing teamwork and sportsmanship”
and the most common phrase heard throughout the crowd … “Go, Wolverines, Go!!!!
With several staff members travelling with the team to face Terrace’s toughest competitors, the Eagles at Uplands Elementary, our boys took the court and played their hearts out. Sweat dripping, bodies crashing, baskets swooshing made for an exciting game to watch. Outstanding performances displayed by Richard, Jaylen and Gabe .. all sinking baskets to fire the team into an enthusiastic frenzy. Nick, Nathaniel, Ethan and Patrick covered the court like they owned it. Zackary defended the hoop like an all-star. Pride and sportsmanship were displayed by Sacha and Jackie as they held their heads high and proved that Suwilaawks Wolverines are a determined bunch. The talent, teamwork and true sportsmanship of the Uplands Eagles made the team tough to overcome but again the Wolverines never, ever gave up. Gabe and Jared left it all on the court … including their skin … but that didn’t deter them. The continued playing with total heart and soul.
The cheering from the crowd could be heard throughout the building. Go, Wolverines, Go!
The Suwilaawks Wolverines made their way across town to face the skilled and talented Thornhill Tigers. Travelling across two bridges, braving the mist and the fog … weary after a long day of studying and working hard at school, our girls put on an amazing performance. As they stepped onto the court, they regained their energy and suddenly came alive. Tristen showed no fear as she skillfully handled the ball on the offence and there was no stopping Patricia as she was able to dribble through and around the opposing team with ease. The game was a back and forth battle, but out of nowhere, Amelia and Libby came on with full strength and shut down the talented Tigers with their height and pure determination. Tyler skillfully set up the plays and was able to bring the ball down the court with ease and elegance. Fighting off injury, Selena played with heart and grit and made some outstanding passes. Madison and Elizabeth are the kind of players who not only play an excellent offensive game but are relied on to make some great defensive plays. Hard work and team spirit was evident throughout the game. The Tigers are a force to be reckoned with and the Wolverines were ready to take on the challenge. Coach Mann was overheard saying “This is one of the most talented groups I’ve ever worked with!”
