It’s time to head inside and stay away from the cold weather. Lucky for us basketball fans or players, basketball is where it's at.
Basketball season is starting at New Haven High School. The athletes themselves are well-prepared due to the conditioning and running they had to do to get in shape for the upcoming season.
You don’t believe me? Let’s hear what the NHHS basketball athletes have to say about their upcoming season.
The athletes were asked “How do you feel coming into the brand new season” and “Have you done anything to prepare for this upcoming season.”
“I am very excited to start the season, and to prepare I went to camps,” said freshman Jessica Underwood.
Senior McKenzie Overschmidt commented, “I feel excited and pumped, and ready to start learning new things and getting more in shape. I try to shoot around at my house once a week to try to get my shot back, but a lot of the time I have been busy with volleyball. So I really didn't get a chance to shoot unless I had nothing going on during the weekend.”
“I'm excited to be playing with some new people, and I am preparing by making a list of themes we could use for the basketball games as well as by making fat heads for the boys basketball team,” mentioned junior Ellie Westermeyer.
Sophomore Will Hellmann answered, “I am pretty excited, and I prepared by conditioning.”
“I am very happy and excited to finally play with my upperclassman friends and to play basketball again with my sister. To prepare for the season, I went to many camps, recruiting camps, and practiced a lot with my dad. I mostly went to R2 every night to shoot around and work on ball-handling drills,” replied freshman Brenna Langenburg.
The girls basketball team plays their first game on the 25th against Bourbon at home, and the boys play here against Belle on the 26th. Good luck to all of the New Haven basketball athletes, and have a great season!
