If some of you haven't taken in a grade school basketball game, do. I am so glad they brought this back in to the grade schools, talk about exciting, keeps you right on the end of your seat. Loving it!

I love it. The kids seem to enjoy it as well. I can't believe how well they play and there is never a dull moment.

The grade school basketball games are great. It's a great thing for the schools, the communities and most importantly the kids. However, why doesn't ALL the schools have the same stuff - warm up gear, matching shoes!!! and mascots??? Those kids DESERVE all the same stuff. It's not fair that some schools have all this "extra" stuff and some do not. The schools should use all those thousands
of dollars they made from their fall carnivals or the money they are making from their ball games and purchase items for their kids!!! Come on you Laurel County school officials / PTO's members with all that money, step up and take care of your kids!!! They are playing their hearts out and representing the schools and the communities in Laurel County.

The bigger schools have more people that have the money to support the schools. The country schools are not so lucky. But then again that is my opinion.
I agree

I just wish they would have made it 4th and 5th grade teams instead of just 5th. You would get better teams and a lot more quality depth and experience. But yes, it is great that they brought back grade school basketball. Who knows, maybe they'll step up and bring back grade school football, and start grade school baseball.

I completely agree that grade school sports are very good for our children. My child plays 5'th grade basketball. I must however ask why co-curricular activities are not being supported in our elementary schools? Activities such as beginning band and beginning choir. Not just music classes, real band and choir classes taught by real music degree teachers. Come on Laurel County we still are lagging behind in this. We talk the big talk, but I've yet to see the big walk!

Saw that Bush went undefeated during the regular season & Sublimity won the tournament this year. Congratulations, to both teams on a great season!

I attended alot of the elementary school games this year and I never saw any fans act rude, but I did see alot of school spirit, especially if the game was close. To me that is what makes the game fun to watch and everyone wants their team to win.
Just wondering
