Three-pointer swish is sound of rec basketball starting

COLONIAL GYM – Rec basketball is a very popular sport at Colonial. At least six kids play basketball in each of the fourth and fifth grade classes.

Shylah Horan said she likes the league “because from practice to a game it is fun even if we lose.”

Evan Kaplan said he does not have time to play but wants to because “it looks really fun because it is a team sport so every player gets a chance to play.”

Rec basketball is played between teams from all of the elementary schools in the Pelham School District. Each team has a color such as blue, green, red or orange.

“I like rec basketball because you play other teams from the district, so it is cool when you see someone you know on the other team,” said Luca Johnson, who is on the Colonial Red team.
