Wednesday, December 8
The HAWKS 7th grade team won the Holiday Youth Classic by beating the Eaglecrest Red team in the championship game Sunday evening. The Eaglecrest team had 3 of the regular HAWKS starters but they weren’t enough to beat the rest of the HAWKS team led by big man Chris Carter and guard Ray Riley.
Congratulations to the players and Coach Terry for their second championship of the young season.

“For the HYC, some good matchups should be:
(For earlybirds only!)
Saturday at Grandview HS in the 7th grade division –
8:00 AM 7TH B TRDGE VS EGLCRST-RD GM 95
9:00 AM 7TH B PL C WLVRNS VS CO HAWKS GM 96
The HAWKS starters are split between Eaglecrest Red (Lamont, Aaryn, Andre) and CO HAWKS (Chris, Ray) so the 9am Wolverines (Chappy?) vs HAWKS game will be tougher than the close contests last weekend, especially since 2 former HAWKS (David & Beau) play with the Wolverines. The Eaglecrest HAWKS will have their hands full with TRidge.”

“Our 7th grade Hawks will have 3 guys playing with Eaglecrest, but we will still be loaded. Our bigs will still be to much for most of the teams that we will face. Chris Carter, Billy Sprague will be more than enough.
We add 2 new players that were not with us last week, that will make us stronger. Little brother of Avery Merriex from East, Alexander as well as Billy. We know that Chappy will be have upset on their minds but we will be up for the challenge.
This tourney has way more comp than last week, more teams entered. It looks like all 7th grade boys games will be at Grandview Sat. & Sun.”
In other HYC news, the other two HAWKS teams, 4th graders and 8th graders, also made it to the championship games of their divisions but came up short against very good opponents.
Thanks to all the parents and fans who supported us this weekend!
