This weekend would best be described by one word – GROWTH. The 2020 Colorado Hawks boys took tremendous steps towards solidifying themselves as one of the top teams in Colorado. We competed in two divisions both 6th grade and 7th grade.
The 7th grade games were very exciting and we demonstrated how competitive of a team we are. It was pleasing to see the light come on for some of the players during this tournament. This was one of the best overall efforts in a loss that I have seen. Many of the players had to do double duty and they did not let them affect their level of play.
Our 6th grade games were led by Yusuf Fisher, Kai Bolcalbos, and Chibike Ekweozor, Josh Mosely, Cheick Kouyate. All three demonstrated they are capable of making solid plays, hustling, and fiercely playing defense. Josh Mosely, Cheick Kouyate, Jamal Warren, Mister Hughes, Takota Fisher and Kemani Dickerson, Isaiha Houston, Kaleb Chaney and Hezekiah Swanson all added value, supported, and encouraged their teammates as we progressed through the pool games and bracket play.
The championship game was one of the more exciting games of the day. It went down to the wire with the Colorado Hawks pulling out the victory with stellar defense down the stretch!
