Here is how we did:

  • Ryken Brown 2nd place in 5th grade
  • Hyatt Brown 3rd place in Kindergarten
  • Noah Thomas 4th place in the 1st grade
  • Michael Scott 5th place in the 5th grade
  • Charles Loper Outstanding Trophy
  • Canon Hansbrow, Elijah Brough, JD Vilchis, Jonas Larsen, Jordan Duersch, Justin Ostler, Reese Larsen, Ryan Lomenick, Sam Woidka, and Taegan Leavitt all received medals

Overall, these kids were just so awesome.  Some kids had only been playing for two weeks and still competed.  What bravery!  A lot of the kids were excited that the trophies were Mustangs (knights).  Matched our shirts perfectly!  In watching them, these kids really displayed their Mustang PRIDE!  They were polite to one another and other school competitors (really such good sportsmanship)!  They showed a huge amount of respect while playing and waiting.  Their integrity and discipline showed win or lose.  And, finally, a great amount of effort went into every game they played.  Our East Meadow kids are learning great things in our school!  It was a great day to be a Mustang!   #emmustangpride #runningahead #eastmeadows
