6th Grade -Ward/Weems AAU State Champions

Congratulations to our 6th Grade Heat ladies for winning the Alabama AAU Championship on Saturday in a contest facing the Tuscaloosa Warriors at Homewood Middle School.  Coach Lance Weems assumed head coaching duties following a very successful run under the leadership of Coaches JoVanka and Steve Ward.  Coach JoVanka Ward was recently named Head Coach of the Homewood High School Lady Patriots Basketball Team.  Coaches JoVanka and Steve concluded their coaching duties following the the Monday Night Madness game on May 21 where they defeated a talented Alabama Twisters team.

The 6th Grade Heat completed a very successful tournament run, and following the AAU State Tournament boast a 20-3 record.  Next up for the team will be a tune-up tournament, and then travel to Franklin, TN July 1 - 6 to participate in the AAU National Championship Tournament. 

Congratulations for your hard work to reach this milestone.  Good luck in Franklin!!!!
