Coach Auble – This weekend the Huskies boys B team were excited to travel on the Stan Stephen’s Glacier Spirit to Cordova to play their first basketball games of the season; for some it was their first games of their middle school career. there was a lot of improvement from the first and second game with exercising discipline on offense and playing tougher defense, it was great to see especially since some have never played a competitive game before. i look forward to the next games and how we can improve more.
