This past weekend Skinner North’s Boys 7th/8th basketball team was invited to participate in this year’s Walter Payton Winter Grizzly tournament. Our team had a great showing and played hard, beating both Whitney Young and Catherine Cook in initial rounds. In our final division pool match-up, the boys played their hearts out against Northside Catholic Academy, a very challenging opponent who forced the game into overtime. Even though our boys gave it their all, they unfortunately came up a bit short and fell to NCA by a few points.
Kudos to Finn B., Alex C., Brian H., Jaiden L., Marcus O., and Rayan S. on their 2nd place finish in their division pool. A special thank you to Evan R. for filling in & playing with our short-staffed team on Saturday and to Coach Ahman Fells for keeping our team focused, motivated and positive through all their games this weekend.
