Boys Varsity Basketball, Girls Varsity Basketball · T.R.I.B.E. Athletes of the Month

Congratulations to our T.R.I.B.E. Athletes of the Month! Junior girls basketball player, Si’Tra Newton, and Senior boys basketball player, Joshua Favors, were selected by the Creekside coaching staff for best exhibiting the attributes of the T.R.I.B.E.:

Teamwork – Cooperation toward a common goal
Responsibility – Being accountable for things within your control
Integrity – Unwavering moral character
Balance – Management of academics, athletics, and other aspirations
Excellence – High quality effort

Si’Tra and Josh both wear jersey #2.  They also have in common the commitment to make gains in the classroom and on the court in order to reach their full potential.  Josh stated, “I recognize that people are watching us athletes and want to do what we do.”  Si’Tra added, “we have to lead by example even when coaches aren’t around.”  They are embracing their new roles as leaders on their teams and hope to be competitive enough to make the state playoffs this season.

While they both wish to earn college basketball scholarships, their dedication to pushing themselves to continually improve could make that a reality very soon.  We are privileged to have these student-athletes represent The TRIBE!
