Greenville 8th Grade Basketball Team Keeps Last Season's Undefeated Streak Going

Sep 20, 2014

Last year, the 7th Grade basketball team from Greenville faced three undefeated teams and finished with a perfect season. This year, the team started their season with a 4-team tournament in South Iron. After beating Bunker 56-8 on Tuesday, the team faced South Iron on Friday night. The struggle was apparent with scoring minimal, but the Bears took a 2-point lead with less than a 30-seconds to go. The Panther’s final shot was in the air less than a second because Bears center Destin Deering swatted the ball away from the goal and the game was over. Bears won 26-24 and maintained their undefeated status.
