Hard work and commitment to the basketball program continues to payoff for the middle school boys basketball team. The team capped off a successful season (14-4) by handing their resilient rival HCA their second loss of the season. The young Eagles were led by a core group of 8th graders who have been in the program for three years: Ben Parker, Sidney Zamor, Dylan Olsen, Brayden Vogel, and Chase DeJong. In addition to the core, the team benefited from the addition of three 8th-grade transfers: Chris Pico, Andre Gardner, and Connor Shin. A group of six 7th grade boys will need to fill big shoes next year as the Eagles will graduate thirteen 8th graders. If history continues to repeat itself, these boys will be dedicated to the continued building of Eastern Christian boys basketball program.
