It was almost 100 degrees outside this weekend, but the real heat was on the Iowa Attack basketball court. Team BV traveled to Ames last weekend to play against some of Iowa’s best and brightest. The games did not disappoint - we had some exciting wins, some close games that had us on the edge of our seats, and had a whole lot of fun. We are thrilled to recognize these students athletes are our players of the week.
Haley Bergan, 7th grade: Coach Freking says Haley gave it her all last weekend. She defended the ball full court and led the team with her ball-handling and press-breaking abilities. Haley led her team and contributed to all facets of the game with her actions on the court. Haley tells us she likes to play basketball because she gets to be with her friends - she especially likes traveling to tournaments and spending time off-the-court with her teammates. She also plays softball and runs track and cross country. Her favorite BV athlete is Lauren Wells.
Kaden Hanzel, 9th grade: Coach Waltner is recognizing Kaden for the tremendous effort he gave every time he was on the court this weekend. He was the best rebounder and defender on the court.

He also enjoys lifting, swimming and spending time with his friends. Kaden’s favorite BV athlete is Nate Keegan.
