Our team played Dorothy Height Elementary School and won the game 25-13. Many players contributed to the team's success, by playing strong defense, grabbing rebounds, making good passes, stealing the ball, and cheering for each other. In terms of our team's scoring, Kingston Archer scored 12 points, Teddy Wallsten scored 11 points, and Cory Walker scored 2 points.
The boys played very hard and showed a lot of good teamwork and basketball skill. While spectators are not permitted currently at athletic programming at our school, we'll keep cheering on our Mustangs remotely!
