The 7th grade took on West on Thursday and came away with an exciting sweep.  In the first game of the evening, the Blue B team defeated West 40-27 with their best team game of the season.  Leading the way with a double double was Ben F. with 12 pts and 13 rebounds.  Garrett P. and Michael M. was next with 7 pts each.  Tyler Y., Will S., and Carter C. each had 4 pts, and Sam D. added 2 pts.  The A team won an exciting game 45-44 with a last second lay-up by Andrew E. who scored as the final buzzer sounded.  Semaj H. gets credited with the game winning assist on a beautiful feed to Andrew to account for the winning basket.  The boys trailed by scores of 11-0 and 27-14 at the half, but persevered and didn't quit and kept playing with heart and effort that has become a staple of this group.  Hart led the way for the East Boys with 19 pts, including the game-winning assist.  Kale H. was next with 12 pts.  Andrew E. had 4 pts, including the game-winner.  Nick O. also contributed 4 pts.  Davis M.,  Jack S., and Brandon L. each had 2 pts in the winning effort.  

The 8th grade Boys Basketball Teams had their rematch games on Thursday against their friends from West and the East Side Boys came home with a split. The Blue B team lost by seven points and the A team swept their rivals on the season- winning 38-31. A couple highlights were: Will M. knocking down a shot in a time when the team was looking for a score, and T.J. D. crossing his way over to the hoop and scoring 9 in the game. Austin H. played a strong game on his way to a double double (10 pts., 10 rebs.), Trey F. notched 9, and Jackson T. scored 5.

Don’t forget that Monday is PJ/Wacky Hair Day.

Have a great day.
