Aledo/Westmer seventh grade wins tiger tip-off
The seventh grade AYB team made up of students from the Aledo and Westmer districts competed Saturday, Feb. 28, at the Sherrard Tiger Tip-Off Basketball Tournament.
They squeaked by the Sherrard team 36-35 and then went on to beat the North Scott team 35-22. This put them in first place in their pool and gave them the opportunity to play in the championship game. There they topped the Davenport North team 45-37 to win the tournament title.
Other teams in the tournament were Monmouth/Roseville and Riverdale. They hope that this will be the beginning of many “Golden Eagle” wins.
