Middle School Teams Hit the Big Time in Kirby Gym

On Wednesday night, the Middle School boys teams took their shot at living the varsity dream. Their games were played in Kirby Gym with all of the lights and sounds of a Friday night CavDome! 

The B team started off the night with an exciting 4-point win in overtime vs. Trinity. The A Team fought hard but fell 52–44. It was a great experience for the future of the program! 

Be sure to come out and support the Middle School girls on their night in Kirby Gym when they host Trinity on Jan. 17!
