Student voices: Workshop Community Has High Hopes for March Basketball Tournament
By Giovanni Brabazon
This March, the Workshop School will be participating in a basketball tournament in Delaware to try and bring back a trophy. The players are very positive about the upcoming tournament.
One 9th grade player, Moussa Sidibe, is trusting in his coach’s abilities. “I think I’ll play good because I have a good coach,” he said. The coach, Anthony “Hubba Bubba” King, played for the Miami Heat.
Another 9th grade player, Jason Hall, is relying on his shot to bring the team to victory. “I’m going to play great because my shot bread.” He also scored 7 points in the championship game that they lost by 10 points.
One of the teachers, Ms. Rowe, was very supportive. She gave the team advice: “I think they need to play together and get to know each other better.” She was a big supporter at the last basketball event that took place at the gym at 5th and Allegheny.
Another 9th grader, Addison Hart, plans to put in some extra time to prepare. “Ima put some work in at the gym. I’m going to play fantastic because I’m going to be prepared.” Addison is a starter for the Workshop Wolverines and is looking forward to the tournament.
With alot of support from the community and the fans, they hope to take back a win and a trophy to represent the Workshop School.
