The Wildcats played a tough game against the Mustangs. Although they kept the score close in the first half, West couldn’t keep up and ended the game fighting a tough battle. “ North’s  defense was tough to battle against,  said Junior Peyton Moore. “ We knew this game wasn’t gonna be easy, but we stayed positive and found a way to score and keep the game close till the second half. With districts so close we are having focused practices on things each player needs to work on. We are working really hard in each practice to know each players role and how we all will work together to get the ball to the basket.”

Kelderman has spent his last five years working on grad-school, but he was able to get a Master’s Degree and now his doctorate out of this time and effort. “I have been taking classes to complete my program for two years and then 1 year of completing my dissertation, “Kelderman said. “I am very excited to be done and love the atmosphere and increased freedom that I have teaching at the college level that isn’t always there in the high school. Because of this, I started looking into doctoral programs about 5 years ago” Kelderman put in the effort to finish hoping to  learn more about how students work towards what they think is success in his classroom.

If universities only care about the usefulness of their athletes, then there should be guaranteed tuition or pay allowing the athlete to finish college even after being injured and unable to play. College athletes should get paid, because universities make a lot from sports. Sports bring a majority of income, especially for small schools. College is not an easy time when it comes to money, so paying money to athletes will give college athletes more relief and will try to help them with necessities they need to perform well.

Fair pay to play
