Our Division 1 Women’s Basketball Cheetahs traveled south to participate in the 2018 USJN DC-17u National Championships from July 22-25 in Washington DC.
On Sunday, July 22nd, our Cheetahs started off well, defeating Massachusetts Mavericks 47-40.
Then on Monday, July 23rd, they won both of two games played. They defeated North Carolina Elite 46-36 and then beat the New York Lady Knicks 42-37.
They then split the 2 games they played on Tuesday, July 24th VS Pennsylvania Shenanigans and New Jersey Franklin Basketball Club. They finished the Preliminary Round with a 4-1 record, earning 1st place in their pool. Awesome job!
The team then moved on to the Bracket Playoffs on Wednesday, July 25th as they tipped-off the first round VS the James River Blaze from Virginia. Unfortunately their loss to James River spelled the end of their journey at the USJN DC-17u National Championships, but we congratulate the entire team for a great showing at this U.S. tournament.
Have a safe and enjoyable trip home, ladies!
