March Madness? Wyverns Create December Delirium!

By Reed Gabhart, Head of Goshen Campus

St. Francis basketball has certainly had its ups and downs over the years. And for the second time in just a few years, our Wyverns have had to become “road warriors” due to gym construction or repairs. Well, all those road games paid off as both boys and girls teams brought home the championship in our Middle School Holiday Basketball Tournament at the Old Male Gym! 

In addition to winning two games each, there were many other highlights. Here are the students who earned their way onto the All-Tournament teams:

Girls: Elizabeth Boyd (7th grade), Ayda Marshall (8th grade)

Boys: RJ Ballenger (7th grade), Robert Boyd (8th grade)

And we also had two Hotshot Contest winners as well. For the girls, 8th grader Anna Hardwick-Jones won and for the boys, 8th grader Isaiah Robles took top honors, also setting a new Wyvern record with 36 points (eclipsing the 30 put up by sharpshooter Kyle McLaughlin two years ago).

Congratulations to coaches Shavar Cowherd and Kara Spalding for leading these teams to impressive tournament victories! Our Wyverns are really taking flight – but ready to return home for home games this week. Go Wyverns!
