East High has been off to a great start since winter sports started. During a recent interview I asked our athletics director Eric Robinson what students could look forward to as the winter sports slowly comes to an end. Robinson says, “We can look forward to the championships and hopefully states.” In other words, if our sports teams wins their final games they will make it to play in the championship.
In addition, the East basketball team is doing great with a record of 11 to 1. I sat down with coach Barley and his two star players Zach Scott, and Kaori Barley. I asked them a few questions on how their season is going and what their plans are to win championships. Zach Scott and Kaori Barley both said that they work well with their team and they plan on winning their games and the championships with hard work and dedication. Coach Barley says, “The team’s goal is to win finals and move on to states.” They will do this by staying focused and working hard every game.
Also Girls basketball is doing pretty good as well. Makayla McCorker scored 17 points in the first half of the girls’ last game. The wrestling team is having a good year with only a few loses. East indoor track team has gotten 15% more kids then it did from the previous years. Overall winter sport seems to be having a great year.
