Congratulations to the SMS 8th grade boys’ basketball team for finishing their season undefeated and claiming the championship over Egan Jr. High. Despite struggles with COVID and a few season ending injuries, the team played for each other and was able to win game after game with strong defensive efforts and steady scoring.
“I am incredibly proud of this group who stayed resilient despite slow starts and injuries. They put together a fantastic season and the undefeated record speaks for itself,” said coach Huang, “I wish them all the best of luck as they go on to high school.”
Many of this year’s team members were returning players and now back-to-back champions from their 6th grade year. Congratulations again to Felix Chang, Drew Hamburger, William Hamburger, Jayden Duong, Omer Avital, Jack Dumesnil, Josh Lim, Diego Segovia, Kai Daron, Nathan Saputra, Andy Elarde, Akhil Puttar, Aiden Agreda, and Ben Seo.
