8th Grade Boys Basketball Captures SWBL Tournament Title

Congratulations to the 8th Grade Boys Basketball team and Coach Jim Sliger on capturing the 2017 Southwestern Buckeye League Tournament Championship on Saturday, February 11 hosted by Brookville.  

In front of a fantastic crowd of students, parents and community members the Hornets defeated Oakwood Jr. High School 55-27! The Hornets played an extremely well balanced and complete game of basketball both on the offensive and defensive ends of the floor. 

The Hornets, who were the tournament's #1 seed followed a path to the championship game that included defeats over #8 ranked Brookville and #4 ranked Carlisle (Chamberlain Middle School) before facing Oakwood in their final game. The Hornets had also received a first round bye in the tournament! 

Congratulations to all the Players and Coaches on an outstanding season!
