Despite their best efforts, with Cormik scoring a whopping 17 points total, the 8th Grade A team lost to the Riverside Cyclones 34 to 41. “It was a tough game. Even though we didn’t leave with a win, we still had fun.” said 8th grader, Camden Scism.

Dason led the court with a total of 7 points on his side. NC took the victory with a score of 17-11. Liam said, “It was a hard fight and worth the effort”.
