March 5, 2018 —

Teamwork by a great group of kids from Jackson Heights, Big Cross, and Kensington Road elementaries made for a super season in 4th Grade Boys Basketball!

The Indians 4th Grade basketball team finished with its third tournament win of the season in a tight game against Cambridge to win the Hudson Falls March Mayhem Tournament Championship on March 4th.

Overall, the team had 18 wins and 2 losses, winning all three tournaments they entered: Schuylerville, Glens Falls, and Hudson Falls. Their first loss in the regular season was by one point, and the second loss (by two points) was in a seeding game in a tournament. "Coach Jeff Woodell worked very hard with this group of boys and it was an amazing and fun ride," says parent Melissa Ives. "The future looks bright for Glens Falls Basketball!"
