Y's 7th Grade Travel B-ball Team Off to a Great Start

The Westport Weston Family Y Boys 7th Grade Travel Basketball Team began their 2013-14 season four weeks ago with a win and have continued their winning ways into the start of the new year.

Playing in the competitive Fairfield County Basketball League, the Y’s 7th Graders started with a 43-32 victory over the Stamford JCC and followed that up with a 44-12 non-league win against Redding-Easton.

After the holiday break, the 7th Graders were back in action against Greenwich Boys & Girls Club, winning 53-43. The squad then beat Chelsea Piers, 36-32. At this point in the season the Westport YMCA team sat alone as the only undefeated team in the FCBL C South division.

After another league victory over Weston 34-23, The Y’s 7th Graders traveled to Shelton for a non-league, out-of-conference game against the Shelton 7th Grade B League team. Shelton held off a late run by the Westport YMCA squad to claim a 41-39 victory and deal the Westport Y team their first loss of the young season.

The boys rebounded well and came back with a victory the next day against the Darien YMCA, 58-44. A well-rounded effort saw every Y player score as they improved their record to 6-1, 5-0 in conference.

The Family Y’s 7th Graders play next on Saturday against Weston. Follow the results of all the Westport YMCA Travel Basketball teams on www.fcblhoops.org.
