Aledo's fifth grade traveling basketball team spent four months playing games throughout the region.

The squad compiled a mark of 31-5 competing in the Black Hawk College Youth League, the Western Illinois Youth Basketball League, and the Alwood Youth League.

"We were able to play programs in the metro Quad Cities, along with the Monmouth and Galesburg areas and Henry County," said Coach Jim Taylor. "It was a great experience for the kids to play a wide variety of competition and hold their own against some quality teams."

The team finished 6-2 at Black Hawk; 14-2 at the Western Illinois Youth Basketball League; and 11-1 at AlWood. Their season began in November and ended Feb. 15.
