CYO basketball is one of the most popular activities here at Little Chute High School. For those of you don’t know what CYO is, it is a fun way to get some exercise with your friends and be apart of a team. The first game this year is on December 2nd. I interviewed a handful of players and they all seem ecstatic for this season to begin.
I interviewed Abby Buchholz, beginning her CYO career this season. She says, “I am very excited to finally get the chance to play with my friends. I hope that we can make it to the consolation championship because I think the regular championship is a little out of reach. I love basketball, so I’m really excited to see where this season will take us. That’s all I have to say about that.”
Olivia Gloudemans, a returning CYO player, seems to be very excited. She says, “I have high expectations for our team this year. I think if our team comes together and plays well we will have a successful season. There are some new girls on our team this year, and we also have a new coach, which we are very excited about. I am excited to see how our team will work together and hope to have a great season.”
Megan Lonigro, also beginning her CYO season this year, says “I am ready for the CYO season to start. I have some previous basketball experience, which I believe will help my team. I am excited to play with a new team, and I am ready for some competition.”
Will Berens, who has played all four years, says “I am very thankful for such a great organization. I want to thank Tim Hartjes for being a great leader and also for doing a great job organizing CYO. I would also like to thank Forest Welch for being not only a great coach, but also a role model. I love playing the game. Although I am not the most talented, I have a lot of fun and a lot of good memories from all of my years of playing.”
As exciting as a season that many people can expect to have, CYO is a fun experience for any student who wants to get some exercise and hang out with their friends. Sign up today!
