On Wednesday, January 13 Valley R-VI recognized our 8th grade girls basketball players. We would like to recognize them for their dedication and hard work over the past years of junior high basketball. Each athlete has displayed leadership, hard work, and determination both on and off the court. Being a student athlete can be tough, but these young ladies have handled it with ease.

  • #14 Alivia Boyer, daughter of Greg and Jody Boyer
  • #12 Maryssa Martin, daughter of Rebecca Morris and granddaughter of Judy Schiendler
  • #44 Hannah Williams, daughter of Kevin and Diana Williams

We would also like to thank the parents for their dedication to these young athletes. Without your help, none of this would be possible.
