We have some wonderful highlights to close out 2019!
NorthStars Shine At Local Basketball Tournaments
Our Girls and Boys teams WON their Holiday Tournaments last week! It’s a great day to be a NorthStar!!! Both teams, under the guidance of Coach Erik Congdon, were proudly the only D3 teams in their respective tourneys in a field of divisions from larger schools.

The NorthStars girls team took the top spot out of ten teams competing in the Wildcat Girls Christmas Tournament, beating the undefeated D2 Nashua Catholic team 35-31 in the finals after besting the D2 Hollis and undefeated Division 1 Bedford teams.  

For the third year in a row, the NorthStar boys remained undefeated in the Titans Holiday Tournament. On the road to the finals, World Academy topped D2 Amherst, D2 Pennichuck, D2 Milford, D1 Merrimack, and defeated D1 Bedford in the Championship by a score of 68-63. Way to go!! We are so proud of our students and thank you, coach C. for this wonderful experience for our teams!!
