An afternoon of hoops at Whittier

       Westside elementary schools have been playing basketball against each other this winter after school – games for boys’ and girls’ teams in grade levels 3-5. Referees generally go easy on calls such as traveling and double dribble. Whittier’s last game of the season will be against Midland Friday, March 16 in the Whittier gym. That’s where these photos were taken March 1 when Whittier hosted Howbert. BOTTOM RIGHT: tip-off in a boys’ game.
