Local Girls Return form National Championship

By David Greene

BRONX, NEW YORK, JULY 17- The Norwood-based Family-Game Time Girls Basketball Team were invited to the AAU National Championships in Kingsport, TN., on July 1 - 6, where they made it to the, "Sweet 16," finals.

The young ladies from the Mosholu - Gun Hill Road area were competing in the team's first season and captured the NY Metropolitan District Championship before they defeated the Virginia Outlaws (24-23) and the Cincinnati Switch (25-23.)

The team was eventually eliminated by the Ohio Phenom and were ranked 10th out of 26 teams invited.

After first thanking the coaches and parents for their sacrifice, team coach Vosco Hicks stated, "The trip was a great experience for the girls and the girls and the coaches will be ready to make another run at the championship next year."

The team is currently based out of the Richard R. Green Junior High School on Barnes Avenue. For more information on the team visit their web page
