Last night I ventured out to another packed house. Not Desert Vista, Marcos, Mt. Pointe or even Tuba City for that matter. I checked out the Metro Junior High finals at Grace Community Church. Grace vs Scottsdale Christian. PACKED!
What I walked away with was VC is re-loading in 2004, and the Metro Junior High league has some ballers. Grace won the game 59 -39. Grace finished with a 17-0 record. The future VC stars won the Christmas Grand Canyon Jr high tourney with wins over Estrella Jr high ( feeder school for Trevor Browne or Maryvale) Isaac Jr High (Carl Hayden feeder) and Championship over Cocapah 37-35 (feeder for Chaparral in Scotsdale that had been undefeated in Scottsdale Jr high league.They had front line of 6'4",6'2" and 6'1"!
In 4 years these guys will be cutting the 2A nets down if they stick together. They can play!
SC - Van Weelden(tough hard nose PG who will help carry on the winning tradition for SCA) 7 pt,Friend (curly haird long range bomber)7 pt, Siwek 13pts, Mc Cutcheon 3pts, De Benidetto 8 pts.
Great game watching these future Prep Stars, and seeing the VC & SCA (Varsity) coaches protecting their territory!
Grace coach Mark De Jong as well as the SC Coach do a great job and the atomosphere was big time hoops.
Well I am off to the VC -SCA Big Boys game, so look for my recap later tonight!
Congrats to Grace and enjoy the pub! Coz no mo promoting the youngsters on PrepAZ.com
VC re-loading in 2004!
