An enthusiastic, energetic group of Tri-City United second-grade students recently completed their first season of organized basketball.

Practice began in November 2023, focusing on basic fundamentals and understanding the game. As the season progressed, the young boys took part in four third-grade tournaments, and played 12 games in the process.

The boys improved every time out and gained valuable experience, according to Coach John Rynda. Rynda said, “At their last tournament in Mankato, a rival coach remarked, ‘They’re only second-graders? Wow!’”

Rynda says the boys have committed to working on their games through the off-season and cannot wait for November 2024 to come!
