The 8th Grade boy's team finished strong, going 3-1 (good for 3rd place) at Concordia.  The team won their first game against the Brookfield Central B team.  We took one on the chin against the Waukesha Junior Crusaders in game two.  Grafton won their last two games against Hartford and SCLBC.  The last game was bittersweet, as it ends the season and 3 years together as a team.  Thanks to all the players, parents and coaches who made it happen.  Good luck this summer and next year at Grafton High School!
