The Whitesboro Warriors 6th Grade Boys put together an impressive showing at the 2016 Junior HoopHall Classic Basketball Tournament in Springfield, Massachusetts. Tournament play started for the Warriors at 2PM on Saturday against a pesky Madison team. After starting strong and building a big lead out of the gate, Whitesboro held on for the win 34-30.
After the game, the team was able to view some of the finest high school basketball in the country. The team gathered at Blake Arena and watched the high flying Montverde Academy defeat Roman Catholic.
In game 2, Whitesboro turned in an all-around strong effort to defeat Billerica-Youth by a score of 29-16. On Saturday night the team dined at Unos, had some fun at the pool, and had a chance to meet some of the basketball players they watched earlier in the day.
Our 3rd game on Sunday morning pitted the team against a NY team from Halfmoon, the Warriors displayed their "Heart and Hustle" with a nice 38-22 win. We were the talk of our pool with a 3-0 record now, that placed us in the final four
Before the next round would continue, the team had a chance to visit the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame (see picture). The boys learned more about basketball and had fun seeing how high they could jump, at the rebound station.
In the semi-finals, the Billerica-Travel defeated the Whitesboro Warriors by a score of 38-22. For the Tournament, the team finished with a record of 3-1. Billerica-Travel was a little more then they could handle.
All and All, the boys had a great time, and will never forget it !!!
