Section V Basketball 2016-17 Season Finals Not So Traditional

aa1601

As long as I can remember Section V tournaments have always been at the Blue Cross Arena/War Memorial. So the 2016-17 season will have somewhat of a different feel.

The finals this year will not be held at the Blue Cross Arena which hasn’t happened since the 1970’s according to Jack Purficato, chairman for Section V boys basketball.

This is something the players look forward to and work very hard to achieve – a shot at the title and a chance to play at the Blue Cross Arena. It’s an achievement that one wouldn’t understand unless you’ve played.

The feeling for many high school students who play and make it to the big house for the finals is indescribable. That walk out on to the court in front of thousands of people there to watch you and your team play is priceless and is part of the reason why student/athletes play. It is the reason students go to class and keep their grades up .

Some of the high school basketball players already face a multitude of challenges you could not fathom in school and at home so to take this away could leave them feeling a bit discouraged.

This leads to the question does the districts sports program have an alternative for the finals?

Just my thought… The tradition is broken and the students need something similar as far as the venue for sectionals to look forward to!

Simone Biles Makes History At 2016 Olympics

OLY-2016-RIO-CLOSING

A moment in black history made by Simone Biles this past Sunday during the closing ceremony of the 2016 Olympics!

Simone is the first gymnast to carry the flag since 1936 and the first African-American gymnast to ever carry the flag.

The only concern Simone had about carrying the flag during the closing ceremony was the fact she is so small and the flag so big it would be too heavy.

But none the less Simone slayed!
