The Kingdom Basketball Bearcats team
The Kingdom Basketball Bearcats team (pictured) took a break from playing on the court to help children in need. Led by coaches Chris Madden and David Harold, these Rummel Creek Elementary School first graders worked together to choose a service project to complete during their basketball season. Rummel Creek has a sister-school partnership with Sherwood Elementary, so the team raised money for new balls to donate for kids to play with during recess. After a successful effort, each grade level at Sherwood received a bag of different types of balls. The Bearcats are (from left): Nico Simpson, Aidan Madden, Pierce Lehman, James Harold, Jaime Smith, Carlos Morales, Ethan Olivier, Henry Baur, Calvin Strait, and William Quieroz.
