Tournament weekend of November 18th and 19th, our Hawk Hoops program had 7 out of 11 teams
who made it to the final championship game. We had 5 teams who claimed the championship title.
We are even more thrilled that our teams are being challenged by playing in different tournaments,
playing against teams we normally don’t play against on a normal basis. Many of our Hawk Hoops
players are improving in different areas and just as importantly each team continues to grow as
one. Check out this week players of the week and players who also received the MVP trophy for
helping their team reach the championship game at the Pre- thanksgiving Invitational located at
Next Level. Go Hawk Hoops!
