Joseph V. Sowmick - February 19, 2016
In an effort to provide bonus coverage, it’s time to flock to the Eagles Nest Saturday, February 20 for the last home game of the season for the boys Eagles Basketball team. Eagles Coach Alan Vasquez and first-year Coach Keith Bennett have the SCIT Eagles boys’ team ready to put it all out on the floor for the last home games.
“The boys have done a great job this year and we are very proud of them,” Coach Bennett said. “Me and Coach Vasquez are going to keep working with them and we will see how far we can go. To have youth basketball and sports at the Tribal Gym helps keep the kids on the right path. This helps them learn some good life lessons and keeps them focused on the positive things we can do as a team.”
Coach Bennett appreciates the support given from the Tribal Members and parents coming out to see the boys’ and girls’ teams play. “We like it when the community is here because this is their home team and this is our home court,” Keith Bennett said. “It’s been like that for years and many of the kids grew up right here in this gym.”
The SCIT Eagles 6th grade boys roster includes Jimaga Nish Martell, Giizhig Martell, Albert Shomin, J.J. Wemigwans, Paul Shomin, Kentae Flory, Daniel Bennett, Devin Bennett, Daniel Wemigwans, Migizi Wemigwans, Parker Anzalone and Damion Hagard.
Recreation Youth Activities Manager Lucas Sprague informs the action starts with a 11 a.m. tip off with the Eagles facing the Chippewa Hills Warriors team one and then playing team two at 2 p.m. Please come out and support Tribal athletics and Eagles basketball. Go Eagles!
