Spotlight Teams of the Week

Boys 1/2 Spurs: ' The Franklin Auto Spa Spurs are gelling nicely as a team. This past weekend they played an up-tempo contest versus the Wizards and did themselves proud. Even at a young age the boys are understanding the value of strong defense and how that can impact the game's results. They show amazing heart and hustle - beginning to end.'- Coach Peter Charlier

Girls 1/2 Wildcats: ' The Wildcats and Blue Hens were definitely impacted by the snow on Saturday as each team had minimum players. But even with a few players the game was well played by both teams. In the final minute the Wildcats scored the go ahead basket to improve to 7-1 for the season. As the season progresses all of the Wildcats are not only growing in their basketball skills and knowledge but also creating new friendships.' - Coach Mark Hineman

Boys 5/6 Chiefs: ' The Chiefs moved to 5-3 with a hard-fought victory over the Razorbacks. The Chiefs went up early, but the Razorbacks fought back with a barrage of three pointers to pull within six points. The Chiefs turned up the defense and answered with some three pointers of their own to hold on for the win. The big question on everyone’s mind remains, however, what team’s nickname is the “Chiefs”? If you find out, please let us know!'- Coaches Alex Bartlett and Mike Hynes

Boys 7/8 Boilermakers: ' The Boilermakers in the 7/8 division lost another close game, which is the story of the season so far. They continue to work hard and stay positive and are looking forward to the playoffs.'- Coach Jim Mack

GVBL Tournament Teams
4th Grade Boys - REBELS
The 4th grade Rebels won again yesterday to go 5-0 in the Malvern League. Cole Krzeminski played great defense and grabbed lots of rebounds. Nate Sherrock and Jamie Cappelli handled point guard duties and provided great leadership.

5th Grade Girls - STORM
The Storm had a light schedule this past weekend with one Malvern League game and one ICBA game. In Malvern League action, they competed against a solid GMW team, falling by a score of 21-11. It was a hard fought battle against a stout defensive team.

Sophia Kauler and Izzy Maloskey hauled in numerous rebounds. The Storm will continue next week with two ICBA games, squaring off against also-unbeaten Whitpain on Saturday.

6th Grade Girls - LIGHTNING
The Lightning had another strong showing this weekend.
