Recapping an exciting first tournament weekend in Saratoga Springs…
The 5th Grade Team got their first W on Sunday with a 41-30. The boys turned around a tough first day against two of the top teams from Albany and Vermont who eventually played for the 5th Grade Championship.
The 6th Grade Team finished their run with a convincing 39-17 win. The boys leave Saratoga Springs with a proud 2-1 record and second place in pool play. These boys’ next goal should be to make bracket play at the Big Apple Super Cup in two weeks.
The 7th Grade Team finished pool play 3-0 with a dominating 52-20 win. With a 1st place finish, the boys earned their way to the National Division Championship Game. The 7th Grade Team fell just short in the Championship Game, losing 67-70, despite a 33 points performance by Justin Morrow. The Warriors fought a tough battle, with the lead changing multiple times and the Warriors falling behind by as much as 16 points in the 4th quarter. The boys should be very proud of themselves with their second overall finish!
Congrats to 6th Grader Mikey Favaloro and 7th Grader Daimler Valerio, for they were chosen as Zero Gravity’s Players of the Game in their teams’ wins on Saturday.
