5th Grade Girls - STORM
 The Storm defeated Swoops 23-15 in Malvern League action. Gabby Kasser paced the offense with eight points, and Sophia Kauler and Amelia Guenster also scored four points each in the winning effort. Lily Mattison and Lauren Serpentine helped run the offense, while Sarah Culbertson contributed several strong passes leading to open shots as well as being a force on the rebounding front. Emily Chi played fast moving, suffocating defense. The rest of the team worked hard in practice with a lot of shooting and fundamentals as the focus. They look forward to starting ICBA play and continuing Malvern League games. 


6th Grade Boys - 2026ers
The 2026ers played a rough championship game in the ICBA King of the Court Tournament. They overcame a 20-11 halftime deficit and tied the score midway through the second half. Unfortunately, they were unable to overcome the consistent pressure and lost a hard fought game,
33-27.

On Sunday, December 15th, The Titans finished off their magical ICBA King of the Court Tournament with a 31-27 victory over WWGB.
