Young squad places third in Jax

Scott’s All-Stars had two squads perform well March 30-April 1 during a tournament in Jacksonville.
The fifth- and sixth-grade teams finished third in their age groups. The fifth-graders earned a division two bid after finishing the tourney with a 2-2 record. The sixth-graders finished 3-2 to earn a division one bid.
“This tournament was also the first tournament since report cards. Therefore, some kids got the opportunity to find out that our program is serious about grades,” coach Marcus Scott IV said. “Students that did not have an 80 average were suspended for two games and will have until progress reports to bring their (grade-point average) up to Scott’s All-Stars program’s standard.”
Scott said two students from each team were required to sit out two games because of the policy. Scott said the team GPA currently is 84, which is a few points lower than in previous years.
“Three of the four players were new to the program,” Scott said. “Usually, after having to sit out games, everyone knowing you are not making the grades and being forced to watch your team play without you, students work harder to make the required grades.”
The All-Stars also had the opportunity to tour the Jacksonville University campus.
“During the tour, students got the opportunity to view the facility and line dance with faculty members who were having a yard party to support breast-cancer research,” Scott said.
