For Kouts patrons and students, basketball season is equivalent to a football season. Kouts thrives in the season that celebrates sweaty students, iconic plays, ticking anticipation, and determination. So, when basketball season rolls around, not only do the students explode in enthusiasm. The parents, grandparents, foes, longtime pals, and players crowd in for the game. From there these odd groups of people hop place to place as the basketball boys play, lose, win, and share in every fantastic moment. Plus, wherever you’re from, whether it be the opposing side that night, or right in your home gym, basketball brings about this sense of competition. It rials up the most unenthusiastic crowd.

What’s Happening: Girl’s Basketball
The Boone Grove’s women basketball team hit a rough patch at the beginning of the basketball season (but so does every sport). The strong women on the team gradually rose up and conquered their losses with wins.
If you were to ask a Washington Township student what their favorite week of the school year is, they will most likely answer Homecoming Week.
The girls picked up their first win of the season against West Central, 23-21. Sadie Leatherman led the Fillies with eight points and five rebounds, followed by Morgan Kobza who added seven points and ten boards. Chloe Koedyker trailed behind with five baskets and nine rebounds. Briana Harper added two free throws. The JV also scored a win against West Central that night.
Student Spotlight: Drew Wennmacher
Boone Grove is full of countless passionate students who are dedicated to their school and their community. In my opinion, Drew Wennmacher is by far the most passionate person that has ever walked across the halls of Boone Grove. Drew fills his interesting life with National Honor Society, Student Council, Academic Team, and has dabbled with basketball throughout the years. Also, outside of school, Drew enjoys playing video games, reading about animals, learning about the universe we exist in, watching documentaries about the natural world, and learning about why things happen, specifically natural phenomena.
Every year, new students come to Washington Township. Whether it is from a school in Spain or from Morgan Township, they all make wonderful additions. This year, Hannah and Joshua Baldwin joined our school. With them they brought the knowledge of being able to play eight instruments collectively, a love for singing and acting, a humor-based personality and several other impressive skills.
