It was a Daily Double for New Heights this past weekend as both our 5th grade boys and 8th grade boys won the championship at the competitive Funsport Junior Pro League.
First, on Saturday, our 5th grade group, led by Coach Kenny Satterfield, won three games in a row against 6th grade teams culminating with a championship game victory over Positive Direction. Nazir Robinson was named most outstanding player.
Then on Sunday at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the 8th grade team defeated the NY Rens in the title game, 32-22. It was an amazing opportunity for our student-athletes to be able to play on the same floor as the Nets. Ryan Myers continued his outstanding play of late, socring 16 points and earning MVP honors. Isah Muhammed was also stellar, scoring 8 points, grabbing 12 rebounds and blocking 6 shots.
Congrats to coaches Rodney Frazier, Corey Edwards and Corey Sherman on the championship. Thanks to Funsport and Under Armour for hosting a great tournament.
