Basketball Jamboree 

By: Sydney Stigall

     The Richmond Spartans and Lady Spartans had a great scrimmage to begin their season. On Tuesday, November 14, the basketball teams traveled to Polo for their start of the season jamboree.

     Going up against the Lawson Cardinals first, the Lady Spartans competed very well. Then, for the second scrimmage, they went up against the Polo Panthers. Looking well prepared for the season, the Lady Spartans have a strong beginning. Senior Brittany Johnson states, “I think we will do pretty well if we keep practicing hard every day at practice.”  The girls basketball team’s first game will be on November 20th at 5:00pm in Excelsior Springs. Their home opener will take place on November 30th at 5:30pm.

     The boys basketball team also travelled to Polo for their jamboree. Competing against the Lawson Cardinals and Polo Panthers as well, the Spartans had a successful beginning to their season. Their first game takes place on November 20th at 5:00pm against the Lawson Cardinals. This also marks their home opener.

     The winter sports have officially begun! Good luck Spartans and have a great season!


The girl’s kick off their season with the first basketball practice.
