IHS Boy’s Basketball: Nothing but net


It is the middle of the season and the IHS boy’s basketball team is pushing themselves as hard as ever. With high hopes and a big goal of making the playoffs this year, the team has done nothing but work incredibly hard each day. 

It has been a tough season so far, but the team believes that all they need is to maintain hope in not only themselves as individuals, but the strength they have as a team together. Through facing these challenges that the season has brought, they have also seen many accomplishments worth noting.

Junior Trevor Todd comments, “We bonded a lot as a team together this year with all our practice and a similar desire to win.”

A shared purpose between all the boys was the strong bond that built relationships between them. This year was different for everyone, and a difficult one at that. Through these hardships, though, the team did not falter or let them fall apart; instead, they grew closer than ever.

The basketball team has seen some other feats, including senior Gavin Homer making his first-ever poster dunk on a point guard during a game.  A poster dunk being one of the most difficult in basketball, this brought upon a lot of pride for both Homer and the team.

Having accomplished something of this sort, it not only brings a sense of pride, but also motivation for the other players to stand out and play harder. Having won more games this year than in the past four brings their motivation to the front page.

With these great efforts and feats, the boy’s team has many goals in mind for the rest of the year. Making the playoffs is the main common objective between them all as it has been many years since the team has gone so far.

Other smaller, more personal goals are found individually among the team members. Senior Michael Odbold shares, My goal individually is to always help my team the best I can, and to enjoy my senior year to the fullest.”

It is important to note and recognize the effort the boys put into representing IHS as a team. They continue to put work into bettering themselves as players and as a team collectively to reach the goals they’ve set.
