Owlets recognized

From Stuart Kaufman, Sports Information:

There were big Owls and small Owls at Spaulding Gym on Saturday. Keene State College basketball players recognized members of the Pee-Wee Owl team at halftime of the women’s game against the University of Southern Maine.

The Pee-Wee Owls team, comprising boys and girls from the Monadnock region, grades K-2, recently completed four Sunday morning practices where they were introduced to the sport.

“I love their energy and enthusiasm,” said KSC women’s basketball coach and program director Keith Boucher. “This is the first time a lot of them have participated in an organized activity as far as sport goes.”

The young Owls are taught skills and then get to play games with members of the KSC men’s and women’s teams. “We lower the baskets so they can play the game and get a sense of accomplishment,” Boucher said. “The looks on the faces when they make a basket is priceless.”
