Eric’s Youth Basketball

Eric Playing Basketball

CNY JBL travel league standings (we were 1st in our group (ACC conf) within the Boys A division!) and finished in 6th place in the 10 team league.  We played in a 6th grade division (B is the 5th grade div), most teams were purely 6th graders – so being as competitive as we were is pretty impressive.

Eric had his last travel team game last night vs VVS. All the older (6th grade) kids went to a middle school dance leaving their 6th ranked team depleted. Six 5th graders vs a very good VVS team that was way bigger. But they played well, losing 43-26. I was really proud of them. Eric had 6 points and played well. The boys improved as a team and as individual players.

Sat AM is Round 3 of the HP League playoffs vs Camden who dominated our 2nd string.  The boys went into the last quarter down by 21 points.  The boys mounted a tremendous rally- holding Camden to ZERO points and scoring 11 points off the press (only allowed the last two minutes of the game).  Everyone felt they had tried their hardest at the end.
