Mt Tahoma wins Franklin Summer Slam

The Mount Tahoma Thunderbirds went 7-0 to claim the championship at the 2005 Franklin Summer Slam basketball tournament last weekend at Franklin High School.

The T-Birds won all three playoff games by double figures, including a convincing 49-30 win over Seattle Prep in the championship game.

"We saw a number of strong programs that look like they will be playing into March next season," said Franklin head coach Jason Kerr following the event. "For all the teams there was some drastic improvement from the players," Kerr added.

Participants included the two teams that played for the 2005 Class 4A state championship and hold the last two 4A state titles, Bethel and Kentwood.

But it was Mount Tahoma that sent the message that they are a team to be reckoned with come the 2005-2006 regular season.
