      The girls on the ninth grade basketball team are talented in many ways. They are incredibly talented on the court, but they are also talented in being amazing people off the court.

       According to Mr. Hammon, “The best part of coaching is the girls. It is so awesome to watch them succeed and get better, and they also make me laugh every day.”  “The girls” as Mr. Hammon mentioned are the ninth-grade girl’s basketball team- Katie Anderson, Elise Barson, Kristine Bartholomew, Georgia Dial, Amanda Felix, Juliana Giles, Angela Harris, Paris Herrick, Karolina Juarez, Suli Lauaki, and Natalie Parker.

SJHS has a really good basketball team, both girls and boys, but what brings the team together is our student section.  The student section is there to cheer on the team and to watch their peers play basketball. SJHS’s basketball would not be the same without the student section.
