The success of our 7th and 8th grade boy’s basketball teams can’t always be measured by wins and losses however, this year was as good as any when you're talking about winning.
Our 7th grade gold team and our 7th grade purple teams beat Crenshaw and Hartford respectively in two unbelievable semi-final games to set up a showdown in the Federal League 7th grade championship game. This was the first time since 2008-09 season that both played each other for the championship. The gold team coached by Evan Elliott was the 3rd seed in the tournament and came into the game with a record of 16-2. The purple team coached by Jordan Johnson earned the #1 seed in the tournament and came into the game with a perfect record of 18-0. The game was an outstanding game that went down to the wire. In the end, the gold team prevailed 45-41 to claim the title.
The 8th grade gold team coached by John Telloni finished the regular season at 14-2 and was awarded the 2nd seed in the tournament. The purple team coach by Teal Harvey finished the regular season at 11-5 and was voted the #3 seed in the Federal League tournament. Quarterfinal victories by both teams resulted in a matchup between the two teams in the semi-finals. The game was a hard fought physical battle despite the fact that they were playing against friends. Overtime was needed to decide the grudge match and the gold team came out on top with a 47-43 victory. The gold team went on to beat the #1 seed Crenshaw Cougars in a thrilling championship game by the score of 53-50 to win the tournament.
Congratulations to both Coach Elliott and Coach Telloni on their championships! The 7th and 8th grade basketball players continue to be the foundation of the Jackson Basketball Family. Thank you to all the players for their hard work and dedication to making the Jackson Basketball program a success!
