Two things rang true today at Royal Oak Middle School: Thunder in the skies and sportsmanship on the court. “I am so impressed to see so much class and sportsmanship,” said Red Division Coach Jillian Gomes, “It makes coaching fun!”
Players have been supportive all week long. Players like Richard Powe, Davis Van Every, Matthew Dilley, Rachel Zapatka and Erin Yeats have all been perfect examples of sportsmanship. From helping their teammates up or being appreciative of opponents achievements, they have made the camp a great experience for all.
Other players making names for themselves:
Coach Dylan on Taylor Vance: “He never complains about a call, a sub in the game or hard work. He is very positive”
Coach Mitchell on Will Qualman: “Balled out in Lightning he made the final two in every game!”
On the court, three players (pictured) earned the eCoach Fundamental Player of the Day Award: Aliya Saad, Lily Shipman and Brayden Kubicki. All three showed the willingness to learn and work on their game at practice and implement those fundamental skills in game action. Well done.
