Next is the DII or B-team. This team, made up of sixth and seventh graders, coached by Mike Hoffmann, is ready to have a great season just like the A team. Other than the goal of winning games, the players have another goal. “My main goal this season is to beat A team,” said B-team player, William Plise.

The DIII team or the C-team is made up of fifth and sixth graders. This team is ready to prove themselves to the coaches for the upcoming years. The players are ready to do their best and strive to win every game they play.

The players on every team believe they can win and will have a great season.

”Our team is good enough to win almost every game this season,” said B team player Tanner Saxton.

The players believe they can win and like the peple hey are playing with. “Our team is coming together really well and we are starting to play together as a team and not as individuals,”said Kyler Winters, a player on the B team. “We have got a great chance of winning.”
