VC Elite wins SGV Championship

VC Elite traveled to Orange County to play in the SGV Invitational.  It is our final tournament of the Fall season so we wanted to make it our best.  Plus this is one of the top tournaments for girls on the west coast.  The 5th Graders played in this tournament for the first time with wins against the Pasadena Vikings and Torrance Northstars and losses against Hartford Elite and Titans Basketball Club.  Awesome tournament for such a new team.  The 8th Graders came into the tournament playing perhaps their best basketball of the season.  They won their first 4 games against Torrance Northstars, Pasadena Vikings, Bay Area Renegades and Lights Out to get them into the semi-finals.  A tough loss in overtime to Triple S Warriors in the semi-finals ended this teams run. It definitely left us with the feeling of "what if...".  The 6th Graders continued their dominance with great rebounding and team defense.  They won their first two games against West Coast Dream and Triple S Warriors. After gutting out a tough overtime win against the Pasadena Vikings in the semis they cruised in the championship game with a win over Triple S Warriors. 
I can't even begin to tell everyone how proud I am of all our players.  Our teams were not only competitive, they were very professional.
