16U Red also competed in the adidas Summer Championships. After being in one of the toughest pools, the team finished 4-0 and headed into the Championship bracket. We lost a heartbreaker by 1 point. Despite the loss, it was an outstanding season in which the teams we lost to were by a combined total of 8 points. The other clubs were put on notice that we are one of the top teams in the nation. Indihoops has the 16U Red team ranked 14th in the nation in their final rankings. Prep Hoops Colorado has this team ranked as the top 16U team in the state.
Jon’il Fugett was ranked third in the adidas Summer Championships in Steals Per Game averaging 3 steals per game
Brendan LaRose was ranked 5th in Blocks Per Game with 2 blocker per game.
William Becker had a breakout summer and his 11 rebounds per game were good enough the be ranked 6th.
16U White ended the season strong as well. After a challenging beginning to the season, the guys found their grove and ended up being ranked the 8th top team in Colorado. The team capped the season off winning REEBOK Eloy Mares Rocky Mountain Nationals.
14U capped off an outstanding summer. In every tournament they played in except one, they made it to the championship game winning 8 championships over the spring and summer seasons. The sole tournament they did not make it to the championship game in was a loss to a very skilled team who eventually won the Las Vegas Last Call. They only lost one championship game in the Eloy Mares Memorial Day Mile High Showdown by 8 points despite having several of the 13u players playing with our team due to most of our 14U players playing Varsity and Junior Varsity for their high school teams. They ended the season winning the REEBOK Eloy Mares Rocky Mountain Nationals, Ball Is Life (Denver) Championship, the JAM Elite Series Tournament, and bringing home a championship in the Bigfoot Las Vegas Classic
13U Red started the season as a new Hawks team. The groups had a very strong season from the beginning. The season was begun with a championship in the Prep Hoops Spring Kickoff in the 8th grade division. This group followed up this win with several championships and final four appearances. They split the championship of the REEBOK Eloy Mares Rocky Mountain Nationals with our 13U White team. They only finished outside of the final four once, which was in Mayb Summer Jam which they made it to the Elite Eight. They ended the summer winning the Ball Is Life Denver tournament.
13U White had a successful season as well. This group won several tournaments as well splitting the championship of the REEBOK Eloy Mares Rocky Mountain National tournament with our 13u Red team. They also ended the summer with a strong run in The AAU Nationals in Las Vegas, falling in the championship game.
