                With fall sports coming to an end, winter tryouts are on everybody’s mind. From swimming, to wrestling, to the very popular game of basketball, tryouts are a dread to mostly everyone.

Being evaluated and chosen out of a number of people tends to freak students out. Not only must they be on their a-game, but they also must show sportsmanship, responsibility, and leadership.

Sophomore Chucky Mutumbo, known for his tall height, explained why he is not trying out for basketball this season. He said how he is “scared he won’t make it,” and does not want to “embarrass himself.”

Dimirti Roros piped in and said “the boys’ basketball team is very skilled and tryouts will be tough with the competition they have this year.” He is looking forward to attend tryouts and hopefully make the team again.

Other students are very confident about tryouts like Sophomore Colin McDonald. He states how he “has a good feeling about tryouts and is very excited to make the wrestling team.”

Not only must students have the qualities the coach wants, but they also are required to be eligible to play. Grades must be above a certain letter grade and some students cannot participate due to this problem.

An unnamed source was upset with this issue for she cannot participate in swimming this winter. She states how “sports don’t have anything to do with English or Government, so why does it matter?” Coaches often lose valuable players due to grades and the team can possibly suffer.

Teachers and coaches wish a successful season to all the players.
