The 8th grade boys junior high basketball team from left to right: Henry Sychay, Caleb Hawkins, Ethan Capling, Joshua Scott(?). Michell Moreland, Andrew Jenkins(?), Thomas Green, Dhruv Bearelly, ??, Jace Krishnan, Charles Ralph, Braylon Reynolds, Khamrin Coulibaly, Elliot Jones, Grayson Vaughn, Jonathan Lippert, Victor Harrison.

The boys’ basketball team began their season on Dec. 5. Throughout their season, the Eagles have faced many hardships and have had their highs and lows while forming team bonds and memories.

The Eagles started with a season opener against Nagel Middle School where they faced a tough loss, but later redeemed themselves against Little Miami Middle School. Since then, their current record is 2-12 after losing to Winton Woods.

“My favorite memory during this season is when we ran full-court scrimmages during practice for 2 hours. It was a very competitive and fun time for me and my teammates, and it strengthened our bond a little more,” Khamrin Coulibaly, ‘27, said.

“My favorite memory was beating Little Miami during our second game. It was the first win of the season and everyone was hyped about the win,” Coulibaly’s teammate Charlie Ralph, ‘27, Coulibaly’s teammate, said. 

Some of the players in the 8th-grade program feel that they should implement more offense in their game strategy. Ralph hopes to implement better substitutions. 

“Our coach this year is a lot better, but our offense needs work,” Coulibaly said. 

Coulibaly also felt they would be more successful if they had more height on the team. 

“We are a very undersized team which doesn’t end well for us in the long run, causing us to miss a lot of rebounds or jump balls because of our undersized team,” Coulibaly said.

The pair agreed that the coaching is supportive, and they see room for improvement in the future. Although the season is coming to a close, they are eager to see what awaits them in the offseason and beyond.

“I’m really excited for next season, and I’m eager to see what our [next] freshman, junior varsity and varsity team will turn out to be,” Coulibaly said.
