The 21st of January was a Saturday like no other! It was the final game to determine the winner of the 7th Grade Girls Basketball County Championship. The game began at 4 o’clock. The 7th grade Lady Mustangs took an early lead, then it was tied, but the Lady Mustangs pulled for the win. The final score was 30 – 24 against Piney Grove.

“We fed off of the crowd; we felt adrenaline when they cheered,” Haelim Adle said. The Little Mill cheerleaders did a fantastic job of pumping up the crowd. Cheerleading Coach Tracy Martin said, “We even had some of our football cheerleaders volunteer to come out to help cheer the 7th grade girls on. They were all so excited!”

  

Adle said she was happy that they had made it so far and felt really prepared. So what did it take to get to the championship? It took a lot of teamwork and long practices. Coach Kidwell, who helped coach 7th and 8th grade girls, said, “I think that they practiced the most out of any team from the county, so I believe that the girls deserved the win.”

They had to stay long hours to teach new players how to play, and they became great friends. The team was built on trust and had the ability to work as a team because they were all good friends. The girls were very focused, but they had fun through the whole experience.

The 7th grade Lady Mustangs have made history at Little Mill. Out off the ten years of basketball seasons, this was the first time we have made it to the County Championship, let alone win it.

Coach Kidwell said, “It took patience, hard work, and time. I am just so proud of these girls.” Everyone here at Little Mill would like to congratulate the team on all of their hard work and accomplishments.
