This year basketball season was fun. Tony was our coach and the people in basketball were Fewnia, Kaleb, Tia, Tatyana, and I. We had good practices during the week and on weekends. Basketball season started in January, and the trip was to Levelock during February, Monday 16th to Thursday the 19th.
Tony had us practice our lay ups, handling the ball, screens, different plays, our free throws, three point shots, running, jumping, rebounding for the ball, boxing out, and other important basketball skills. The community also helped us out a lot by showing up to gym night and scrimmaging with us and purchasing from our school store, which we No-See-Ums are really grateful to have their contribution and support.
During the meet in Levelock we had many fun events during those four days. There were basketball games, community service that involved walking around the village picking up trash. There was also a diabetes walk, icebreakers (which is what we call the games everyone does together), relay races, basketball contests where we did free throw shots, three pointer shots, and dribbling the ball threw your legs while walking.
Egegik Bears won the districts; they played a really good game against Perryville. The all tourney awards were given to: Tia Lynn, Kaleb, Peter, Jerome, Erik, Ethan, Abby, Jacey, Seantay and Angel. Good Sportsmanship awards were given to the Kokhanok Warlords, and included Warren, Lyza, Shaylin, and Michael.
Everyone at the meet did really great, all the basketball players played really hard, the people hosting the event and the volunteers to help them out did a really good job. They kept us fed, hydrated, provided us a place to sleep and school clean for everybody.
