JMHS basketball teams offer motivation for county's youngsters


LINDSIDE (WVVA) - The James Monroe girls and boys basketball teams proved to be more than just athletes Wednesday.

The teams joined together to promote academics and give motivational speeches to students at Peterstown Elementary.

The players told kids to take their studies seriously, stay away from drugs, and never give up on their dreams.

They also joined in with the kid's daily activities -- math, reading, even a little dancing.

Students say they really enjoyed spending the day with the high-schoolers and feel very inspired to also become a Maverick one day.
