Basketball Tournament

Today was the Faith Academy Mindanao Middle School Girls Basketball Tournament. In addition to Faith, two other schools, Dranhs and Assumption participated. There were a total of six games, each team playing the other two teams twice.

Here's the tip off for one of the games with Assumption

Elise (#11) gets in position for a rebound

Amy takes the ball down court (she's a point guard)

The girls lost their first two games (to Dranhs and Assumption) but came back to beat both schools the second time around. The win against Assumption was the final game of the tournament, and Faith won 45-44. It was a very exciting game, and the girls played with lots of determination. Assumption was the overall winner of the tournament, with Faith coming in second. Amy and Elise really enjoyed the camaraderie and challenge of playing on the team. They did a great job!
