Bring Him Back
 October 22, 2004
Hello everyone-

Well, just thought about telling you about what happened this past week at Window Rock High. The Window Rock Scouts
Volleyball Team is 7-7 in conference and 26-15 overall and will be traveling to Tuba City for first round play and then to Ganado for
seeding for state.

Other news the school did not choose Mr. Haven at the Boys Head Basketball Coach, I personally feel sorry for him because over the summer
he has been working with the returning players, he has taken them to camps, tournaments, and held sessions for players to better their skills.
Haven was hired last if I remember correctly to be the head coach of the basketball boys team but was then moved to principal.
Out of all that, they have not chosen him to be working with the boys team. The Boys team trusts and enjoys working with Coach Haven
because Haven has brought them from know same thinking about basketball and now have a better knowledge about the sport of basketball.

I am writing this because the players are concerned about their season and want their coach back, the coach that has help them understand
the sport of basketball, and want the coach that was working with them during the season, and told them what they need to do to better for themselves.

The boys need coach Haven back....
