10U Green Team Wins March Madness Championship
In a great start to the competitive AAU season, the Matrix Green 10-Under/5th Grade team won the Maryland Flames March Madness tournament over the weekend of March 29-30. 

The Green team beat two teams from Maryland in preliminary games (33-17 over the Maryland Attitude and 28-22 over Our Lady of Lourdes) and then bested the Matrix Black team 14-11 for the championship in a close battle at the Capital Sports Complex.

The three Green team victories were highlighted by stellar play inside by Ellen, supported by a range of teammates crashing the boards in a very physical tournament. Outside, the team was led by point guard Amanda and off guard Marie, who played the lion's share of minutes. Kelly pushed hard and sank key shots in her one game and Emily contributed on both ends of the floor for all three games, notably on defense in the title game.

Kate and Katherine helped pull out a close game on Saturday against Lourdes, putting in key late baskets. Lisa played valuable minutes and scored for the team, as did Christine and Georgia and Daniella who all played tough in the paint during ferocious battling for the ball. Congrats to all.
