Middle School Basketball Championships

To The Hoop!
Posted on 02/08/2019
Hyre CLC was the site for the 2018-19 middle school basketball championships. The girls kicked off tournament action as the #1 Litchfield CLC Argos took on the Lady Hawks from Hyre. Litchfield entered undefeated, but the Lady Hawks were ready to avenge last year's loss in the title game. Hyre slowed the pace down and got some timely shooting to take an early 8-0 lead. Litchfield battled back in the second period to close the gap at 12-4. Hyre continued to make tough shots in the second half. Leading the way for Hyre was Rachel Wenzel along with Mya Knight, Mia Parks and Julianna Shaw. The final score was Hyre 32 - Litchfield 17.

The boys' championship figured to be an easy win for Litchfield. The Argo's brought a perfect record into the championship which included two victories over the Griffs. However, the Griffs used some wise strategy and slowed down the tempo forcing Litchfield to play a patient half-court game. Litchfield was ready with the likes of Chris Foster, Quincy Rookard, Marcel Boyce and Khamoni Jones. Great defense lead to slow start, and the Litchfield Argos had a game on their hands. Holding narrow leads at the half and entering the fourth period, Litchfield held off Buchtel CLC to win their second title in a row by a score of 49-37. Buchtel had great efforts from Lavelle Sharpe, twins Devin and Kevin Cooper, and Earl Jones. 

Thanks to all of our schools for a great season of basketball. Our middle school programs are well attended and certainly improving every year!
