The spring sports season at Indian Wells Elementary School included numerous wins and some hard-fought losses.
Enough students turned out for softball to make two teams, Red and Blue. Both played games under some very difficult circumstances, such as cold weather, wind, rain and hail. However, the students worked hard, improving their skills and teamwork.
Unfortunately, Coach Hoby Wilhelm’s Red team was eliminated from the playoffs in the first round by the eventual champions. The Red squad finished its season with a 5-3 record.
Coach Ryan Attakai’s Blue team made it to the championship game at the finals, but lost to the same team, thereby placing second in the NAJHL league for the season. The squad closed the season with a fine 7-1 record.
Soccer was amazing this year. Many starters from last year returned as sixth graders, strengthened by some motivated fifth graders. The IWES team went 3-0 this season and was only scored on once. During the first game against Leupp, they “worked out the cobwebs,” said Coach John Paul Hunt, winning 4-0. Coach Tim Eddings related that the second and third games were both won against Seba, with amazing play despite missing some key players. Battling wind and rain during the finals in Dilkon, and in spite of some players being injured, the IWES team persevered and won the championship.
The Spring Sports Banquet was held May 16 at IWES. Theron Olney and Sevanah Bitahy were honoreded as the Male and Female Athletes of the Year. Two Scholar/Athletes of the Year were chosen, Shayne Halwood and Amber Paul.
