For the seventh grade girls basketball team Hamilton Middle School did not have a seventh grade team, so there was an odd number of teams. Since there is an odd number, the number one seed Liberty Union got a bye and we did not have a play-in game. On Saturday, February 1st, the seventh grade team played Bloom Carroll, the number two seed. The seventh grade girls basketball team ended their season with a loss to Bloom Carroll.
There was an even amount of teams for the eighth grade level so they got a play-in game against Hamilton’s team on Thursday, January 30th. It was an extremely close game, but Logan Elm pulled it off and won 29 to 28. After that the eighth grade girls team played Bloom Carroll on Saturday, February 1st. The eighth grade girls basketball team ended their season with a loss to Bloom Carroll.
Both seventh and eighth grade basketball teams improved throughout the season. Everyone had fun and got along great. The 2019-2020 middle school basketball team was a great learning experience for all.
