Matrix 10U Teams Take Home 2nd Place Trophy in Syracuse
The Matrix girls took 2nd place in the Syracuse, New York tournament and brought home the 2nd place trophy the weekend of June 17-18.

The Wadsworth Ohio Grizzlies proved too much for out Matrix girls tonight, and the final score was Wadsworth 31, Matrix 17.  However, the Matrix were presented with a wonderful 2nd place trophy for their effort this weekend.

The Matrix girls played one of their best first halves ever tonight, and held the Grizzlies to a 13-12 hlf time lead.  The Matrix played a swarming defense, and had several steals and blocked shots, rattling the Wadsworth girls and taking them out of their typical fast break game for the first half.  In the second half, the Wadsworth girls regained their composure, and turned the tide of the game, stealing several passes and converting to fast breaks, while opening up a lead.  Our girls played with spirit and pride against a very tough team.

The Matrix 10U Spring team went 3-1 to advance to the finals.  The tournament was a fitting wrap-up to a successful season for the 10U team.  In addition to their 2nd place finish in Syracuse, the 10U team also took home the champions trophy from the Battle in the Forst Tournament in Owings Mill, Maryland the weekend of May 13-14.

Congratulations to all the players and coaches on the team.
