150 miles  + 8 players and a water boy + 2 coaches = New England Middle School CHAMPIONS!!!

 Willie Ross defeated American School for the Deaf to advance to the championships where they faced off versus Marie Philip School (TLC).  They took the lead after a few minutes and never looked back!  55-39 was the final score.   We took everyone by surprise, that’s for sure! 

Please congratulate the following students when you see them:

Nino, Jeremiah, Melanie, Natavia, Nyasia, Carlos, Hayley, Richard, and Brian!

Special thanks to the great coaches, Keith and Teresa!

GOOOOOO Willie Ross!
