The first game of the Basketball season

With the Freshmen game on Tuesday, 14th of November, the basketball season officially started.

A lot of excitement goes around the halls, with the students that can’t wait to go to the games and cheer for GHS.

“I’m really excited for the varsity games, they are usually the loudest,” said Daniel Walker, junior.

The 5 starters, Dakota Arnold, Andrew Rodriguez, Dallan Van vliet, Nick Adams and Colt Thomas, at their absolute first game of their high school career, managed to end the first, second and third quarter on the lead.

In the last quarter the scores were inverted, and within 3 minutes Wendover was on the lead by 2 points.

Coach Travis, the coach of the freshmen team, pushed the team to not give up, to attack every ball and try to steal it to be back on the lead but the Wildcats were prepared for this and managed to score another 9 points, that set the scoreboard to 37-47 for Wendover, and this was the final score.

Despite the bitter defeat the players got out of the court with a smile on their faces, because all of them are ready to get better and win as many games as possible.

Braxton Goodsell, freshmen in the basketball team said “We should have won but I feel like for our first game in high school it wasn’t that bad”

Both the Varsity and Frosh team are practicing 6 times a week, around 3 hours each day including Saturday morning to get better everyday, putting in the effort that the 6 coaches are pretending from them.

He has come to Grantsville High School all the way to Utah to try highschool in the American way and see how things are different here than it is in Italy.  He decided that he wanted to try something new and come to school here in America. When he and his family went on a family vacation to America they went to Los Angeles and visited the Grand Canyon.  After they got back Massimo was interested in coming to school here in America to try something different and he thought that it would be an amazing experience.  Him and his family found an agency that is for foreign exchange students and they got all of his information and put him on the website for any family in America to choose him to come live with them and go to school in America.  A Family in Grantsville Utah chose him to come live with them and go to school in Grantsville. I asked him, “Why did you choose to come here? There is seriously nothing here. He said, “ I was put on a website for foreign exchange students and a family here picked me and that's why I came here” He can’t choose where he gets to go. He got picked by a family and then he traveled all the way from Rome, Italy to New York to Chicago then to Salt Lake to meet his new family in America. He still has been trying to get used to everything.
