Jordan Middle School 7th grade boys' team wins title


Avenging its only loss in two years, the Jordan 7th grade boys' basketball team defeated Cunha Middle School, 47-34, to win the Art David Athletic League (ADAL) Championship playoffs.

Griffin Byer starred for the winning Jaguars with 25 points in a very tight game until the final minutes. Jordan brought a complete team effort -- strong defense, aggressive rebounding and an efficient offense.

The championship victory over Cunha came one day after a dramatic Jordan win against Terra Linda in overtime, 31-28. Miles Tention and Pete Snodgrass led the scoring effort with Byer closing the game out in overtime. In the first round, Jordan defeated Ralston, 45-25.

"Once again, this group of boys proved themselves to be a special one," said Jordan coach Ken Morgan. "They work hard, they are committed and they never quit. Being 25-1 in two years of basketball is something to be proud of, but representing Jordan with good sportsmanship and class is even more important."
