For months, the Stuart Pepper Middle School Greenwave basketball team has been being bounced around from gym to gym in Meade County to host home games. On Jan. 9 the Eight Grade team finally was able to host the North Middle Trojans on their own court. As parents, students, and Meade County residents who just wanted to see the newly renovated gym, they were greeted with a beautiful bright wooden floor, and a bleacher large enough for a high school. (No more standing around the court in this gym)
North Middle is the top team in the conference, and they showed why straight from the first tip off. Their offense started the game with some fast passing, moving the ball around the arc, scoring a quick nine points. Keeping Stuart Pepper’s offense grounded most of the first period. Trever Ling, who took the tip off, was also the first player to score in a live game with a put back.
