Congratulations to the 5th Grade Boys White Team on their consolation championship last weekend. After starting out flat in their first game losing to Muskego's A team, the boys rallied back in true Charger fashion by coming out firing in the second game.  The boys defeated Waukesha West by double digits, jumped out against an A team from Cedarburg 22-8 and
finally defeating Germantown in a nail biter to win the Consolation Championship.  Out of the 8 tournaments we've played this season, the boys have placed in all but 2. Congratulations!

Defense and heart were words of the day for these young men.

Posted Mar 25/13 - 6th Grade White wins March Madness Challenge!

The 6th grade Chargers White team won the Concordia March Madness Challenge over the weekend.  The boys played tenacious defense and were monsters on the boards, grabbing 140 of them in the four game tournament.  The boys defeated Nicolet and West Bend on Saturday and returned on day two to defeat South Milwaukee and Nicolets A team in the championship. The boys played unselfishly, making great passes, and showed great poise coming down the stretch of Sundays games.  The championship was decided on a basket with 10 seconds left.  More tenacious defense by the Chargers prevented Nicolet from getting a shot off to tie the game.  The tournament was the perfect way to cap off a fun season of Chargers basketball.

Congratulations to the 6th Grade Boys-Black team who took 2nd place in the WYBL B Division Tournament this past Sunday. The boys played great team basketball and outstanding defense all day to earn their way to the championship game.  They beat Wauwatosa West and Shorewood in their fist two games by narrow margins.  In the semifinal, the Chargers came back to tie the game in the final minute and send it into overtime, where they gained a come from behind overtime victory.  In the championship game against Mukwonago, the Chargers played tough the entire game.  After being down by as much as 12 points with under 4 minutes to go, the Chargers stormed back and cut the lead to 4 with 1 minute left, only to fall short by 6 points in the end.

The accomplishment in the WYBL Tournament capped off a terrific season for the 6th Grade Jr. Chargers-Black team where all the boys improved their basketball skills and the team compiled over 30 wins on the season.

Posted Feb 5/13 - 5th Grade White Wins Cooney Classic

The Jr. Chargers 5th grade Boys White basketball team captures yet another championship at the Cooney Classic in Oconomowoc   on January 26th ,  along with a 2nd place finish at Just a Game Field House in the Dells on January 19th.  The championship run by these young men was very impressive.  The Chargers saw Double digit victories over very good competition including; Oconomowoc, Whitnall and finally Germantown in the finals. During the second game, the Chargers were majorly outsized down low.  A superb defensive effort, using their speed, leverage and great footwork, Josh Meulmans, Justin Stevenson, and Adam Fantl shut down the very big low post play of Whitnall.   Outstanding three point shooting by Kyle Brinkman, great passing by Elijah Houser and  Jacob Fobes, along with unstoppable dribble penetration by Brenden Ban and Darius Bates proved to be too much for Whitnall to handle.


During the course of this Semi-Final game Darius Bates suffered a fractured finger on his shooting hand.  Not wanting to let his team down, he begged his coaches to let him play in the championship game and also in our two league games the next day.  Darius went on to score forty points between those three games and at one point broke a full court press using only his left hand and scoring the layup on the other end!

The team is playing its best basketball of the year.  Team and individual confidence is at an all-time high for these young men but most of all, they are having fun!

Posted Jan 28/13 - 8th Grade Red wins KM Tourny

The Sussex Hamilton 8th grade red team won the Kettle Moraine Tournament this past weekend by defeating Waukesha North 58-22, Franklin 59-17, a very good Kettle Moraine team 51-29, and one of the better teams in the state at the 8th grade level, Grafton Select 48-39.

The boys played stifling defense all day Sunday to propel them to the championship. In the first two games every player scored and contributed quality minutes. Ben Nolde returned to form, contributing both on the offensive and defensive ends of the floor all weekend long. Jordan Smith led the charge vs Kettle Moraine with a 19 pt 5 reb effort. Bradley Purko added a team leading 6 rebs and also hit two timely jump shots. The team was very solid from the charity stripe making 15 of 17 attempts. 

In the championship game Sam Bjorkland could not be stopped. He turned in a very impressive performance finishing with 19 pts and 7 rebs. Jordan Smiths was physical on the defensive side of the ball and held one of the better 8th grade players in the state in check. Hamilton imposed their will on Grafton from start to finish.

The team really came together this weekend. They played very well on the defensive end, executed the game plan, and shared the ball. All the boys contributed in some capacity through out the entire weekend.
