The Scott’s All*Stars eighth-grade team won a division championship as the program hosted its annual Mother’s Day Tournament on Friday and Saturday at the Liberty County YMCA and Midway Middle School.
According to All*Stars founder and coach Marcus Scott, the tourney had 16 teams, from Coastal Georgia and South Carolina, in four age groups.
Scott said the tournament was well-attended, and his teams performed well.
“Every team won at least one game,” he said. “The eighth-grade team played in the ninth-grade bracket and beat every ninth-grade team, going 3-1.”
The eighth-graders’ one loss was to the Carolina Ballers. But Scott said the two teams met again in the championship game and the All*Stars won, 83-79.
Tourney champions by grade level:
Sixth grade — B-town Ballers
Seventh grade — Coastal Rebels
Eighth grade — Carolina Ballers
Ninth grade — Scott’s All*Stars eighth-graders
