Junior Pro Basketball Season Ends with a tournament

The Heat Team were the Champions

The season ended on Saturday, January 11 with the tournament after a full season of league games for young athletes at Monticello Elementary.

Monticello Elementary students in grades 3-5 played twice a week during the season.  This is the feeder program for the middle school under the direction of Noah Rice.  Each team played 10 games during the season and the tournament was single elimination.  The league had a total of 76 players and was open to all Monticello students.  

Special thanks to the high school students that refereed ( Jacob Morgan, Jayden Keith, Gehring Sexton). The competitions are part of an instructional league to work on fundamental skills.
