We were very fortunate to have 10 of our Hawk Hoops teams travel to San Diego and participate in the Indie Hoops Top Gun Fall Invitational classic. With teams attending from all over California our Hawk Hoops teams represented well. Every team was challenged while having success. Six of ten teams made it to the final championship game with three teams claiming the championship title. There were no serious injuries and all players were able to play the game they love. Great to see players bonding and enjoying their travel ball experience. Thanks again to all parents for the sacrifice they made attending the trip. This experience is priceless!

PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
#42 Muluken (Koni) Wempe and #14 Taliyah McFerson were selected as players of the week for their play during the Top Gun Indi Hoops Fall Classic in San Diego. Koni has always been a pleasure to coach and his play this weekend helped energize his team and advance them in the tournament. He displayed tremendous stamina and effort every game with his tenacity and aggressiveness. He is a great leader by example with his effort on the court, hustle and attitude. Very unselfish player. Tailya McPherson is a 11 year old with great overall potential. She has great size and is determined to be the best she can be. With her strength, rebounding and ability to dominant she has a bright future. What a pleasure to watch these players develop and be great teammates. Congrats to both players.
