Most of the LMVSC travel basketball teams began regular season play during the weekend of December 1st. Prior to the start of the regular season, both of our 8th grade boys teams played in pre-season tournaments.
Our 8th Grade Boys Red Team participated in the BRYC Thanksgiving Tournament, during which they advanced to the semi-final after going 4-0 in pool play. Although the team lost their semi-final game to SYA, Coach Hoskins was proud of their effort and felt that the team had executed the fundamentals required for a successful season, which was evidenced by the team’s win in their regular season opener over Gainesville, 55-46.
The Boys 8th Grade White Team participated in Coach Wootten’s Fall Basketball Classic, competing against high level teams throughout the Northern Virginia. Although the team did not do as well as it hoped, the boys learned a lot and are now better prepared for the regular season.
