Taerang Middle School students’ high school 3×3 challenge, “I wanted to experience a challenge”
“I competed with the goal of challenge and experience.”
On the 18th, middle school boys, united with a spirit of challenge, appeared in the second round of the 2023 KXO 3×3 Winter League in Hongcheon, which is being held at the Hongcheon National Sports Center in Hongcheon-gun, Gangwon-do. The main characters are the four members of Taerangjung, who threw a vote saying that they want to experience 3×3 against older brothers who are 10cm taller than themselves.
KXO, which had announced the U15 division ahead of this tournament, canceled the middle school division when the participating teams in the U15 division did not meet the standard. Unfortunately, most of the U15 division teams that expressed their intention to participate in the tournament gave up, but only one team expressed their intention to participate in the tournament even in the U18 division.
Taerang Middle School, consisting of Lee Jae-jun, Yoo Seung-ho, Jang Yun-woo, and Choi Chan-min, is the only middle school student in this tournament. The four players who are attending Taerang Middle School located in Nowon-gu, Seoul did not hesitate to travel to Hongcheon-gun, Gangwon-do to participate in KXO.
Taerang Middle School, who participated in the KXO Winter League with one passion for basketball, are students who have been promoted to the second year of middle school this year. Taerangjung players with youthful faces were the first to arrive at the stadium among the participating teams and showed their enthusiasm to warm up.
Taerangjung, who couldn’t leave a smile on his face as if everything was fun, said, “I’m playing a basketball club at school. I often play 3×3. This is my first time participating in KXO, and I hope it will be a good experience.”
He added, “I was very sad when they said that the U15 division was gone. Then I heard that I could play in the U18 division, so I decided to try. I think it’s a tough challenge, but I still want to appear in KXO, so I raised my age to the U18 division,” he added.
When a middle school student competes against 온라인카지노a high school older brother, you can tell whether you win or lose without looking at the results. However, the players of Taerangjung said that the result was irrelevant and that they wanted to enjoy the game itself.
Taerangjung, who has just gotten out of the freshman year and has not yet had many opportunities to play in school. So the Taerangjung players, who said they wanted to participate in the KXO Winter League even more, made their KXO debut against Hongcheon Epin, their first opponent in the preliminaries.
The result was defeat.
However, the Taerangjung players seemed satisfied with the fact that they played their game completely on a 3×3 court.
Taerangjung, who suffered two consecutive losses in the two preliminaries, but promised to do well in the last match, said brightly, “As expected, it’s hard. But it’s fun. I’m participating in KXO for the first time this time, and I want to go back with a good experience. It’ll be difficult, but I want to win one.” They smiled and said they wanted to finish their KXO challenge well.
