It's the 4th quarter and Clemens is up by one point with the score at 40-41 and less than 10 seconds on the clock. Clemens has possession of the ball. The ball is passed to Jocelyn Ervin in the paint. Wasting no time, she goes up and takes a foul as the Clemens bench yells in excitement.
She goes to the line and sinks one of two free throws, making the score 40-42. Clemens is now up by two with less than 2 seconds on the clock. Steele calls a timeout, making a plan to score as the seconds wind down.
Steele passes the ball in, but Serenity Castillo grabs it before anyone else can, holding onto the ball so know one else can get it. Yells of disappointment and joy are heard all over the gym and Clemens takes home a win.
“I’m not nervous to play Steele because we have come a long way on running our offense. Mila Martin (10) said. “We just need to take it seriously and work hard and we’ll get the outcome we want.”
Clemens has been working hard for this moment in order to beat Steele.
“Personally beating Steele was a very proud moment because last year we lost to Steele,” Chesney Smith (10) said. “It was very hard to take that loss, but I am very grateful for that loss because it was a learning experience, and it let us grow and learn from our mistakes and before the game
Clemens plays every district school twice and they are hoping they can work hard enough in order to beat JV Steele for a second time in a row.
