Force Five All Stars Finish Second at Nationals

Force Five, a local 6th-grade all star team,

competed on the AYBT tour throughout the summer and claimed second place at the

AYBT National Tournament held in Bloomington, IL this past Thursday July 18th

through Sunday July 21. On the final day, Force Five defeated the Illini

Force in the semi-finals 41-35 and moved onto the National Championship

Game, only to fall short to Tri-County, a Northern Illinois All-star team,

by a score of 41-36.

The team was made up of 5th and 6th graders from Selmaville,

Raccoon, Franklin Park and Trinity Lutheran.

 Head Coach Bill Milner said he was very proud of the group.

"We began practice in April twice per week and played

in over 30 games throughout Illinois and Missouri.  Our goal was to get to

the National Championship Game which we did.  We fell just short of our

goal to win the national championship for the 3rd year in a row, but the season

was a great success."
