We Are the Champions

It's another league championship title for Hart, thanks to the 8th-grade boys basketball team.

The 8th-grade team was up against crosstown rivals Pleasanton Middle School for the Tri-Valley Athletic League championship title. The Huskies won Thursday's championship game with a final score of 51 to 29.

Pleasanton led the game at the end of the quarter with a score of 6 to 3. The Huskies showed their best full-court press in the second quarter, taking the lead at halftime with a score of 20 to 13. Pleasanton rallied to close the gap to four points by the end of the third quarter with a score of 32 to 28. The Hart offense exploded in the final quarter, scoring an incredible 19 points for the Huskies.

Hart's top scorers are Andrew Kim, 2 points; Michael Climent, 5 points; Seth Cobb, 9 points; Rahul Patel, 10 points; Blake Braden, 12 points; and Shaun Kienhofer, 13 points.

The 7th-grade boys basketball team came out second in the league standings after losing to formidable opponent Fallon Middle School of Dublin. The final score was Fallon 53, Hart 35.

Hart played a fantastic game against an incredibly tough team. The score was close at halftime, 25 to 19, but the Huskies simply couldn't hold the court against the fierce Fallon players. Everyone on the Hart team played and contributed to a well-played championship battle. The Huskies finished the year with a respectable 10 wins and only two losses.
