The Storm basketball team is off to a competitive start! Play began with our participation in the Lee's Summit North Tournament, facing the home team first round. It was a hard fought battle, against a strong and big Lee's Summit North team. The team turned around and came out with a big win against Blue Springs High School, as they began to put the pieces together and find their groove as a team. As the tournament winded down, our final game was slated to be against St. Teresa's. Always a highly anticipated match-up, this rivalry did not leave anyone disappointed. Both teams had something to prove, and as the clock winded down in the fourth quarter the score was tied 44-44. The Storm did not end up on top in overtime, but with the best competitive spirit played thus far, they certainly used it as a stepping stone.
Monday, December 2nd, we hosted St. Joe Benton. The cardinals were undefeated in the 2015-16 season, and went on to win the Class 4 State Championship. The night began with a record high scoring Freshman game, and the Storm it's first win of the evening. Next up, the JV game solidified the fact that this was a great match-up between these two programs. It was full of scrappy plays, as both teams fought until the final possessions of the game. Again, Sion would find themselves on top, pointing to Varsity for the clean sweep. Well, the Varsity squad answered. With 9 of 10 players scoring, it was an incredible team performance, and certainly a game that will not be forgotten anytime soon. The Storm began to pull away in the 3rd quarter, finding itself with a 10 point lead. Benton would certainly not go down without a fight, and with a lead change in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter, the team responded with huge offensive possessions and squelching defense. Final score...40-36, and Sion came away with the clean sweep!
The team travels to Lawrence High School on Friday, December 8th, followed by match-ups against Aquinas and Truman to close out competition before the Christmas break. These teams are incredible to watch, so don't miss the opportunity to come show them your support. You won't be disappointed. Current records are Freshman: 2-0, JV: 3-1 and Varsity: 2-2.
