The Newport Lightning Basketball Club (NLBC) continued its strong fall season by taking home two championships at the BCS "Back To School Bash" in Garden Grove and Anaheim.
The NLBC Boys 11U team went undefeated and took home the trophy beating RC Bulls, Open Gym, PD and BCS over the Sept. 20-21 weekend. The boys played excellent team ball with timely passing and stifling defense and they hit key shots throughout the weekend.
Sam Barela, Adam Flood, Will Hanna, Luke Chelf, Jack Garza, Peter Larsen, DJ Rodman, Cameron Kayl, Mason Melcer, Matt Olson, Tyler Hollander and Bryce Motal all played key minutes, while Chelf, Barela and Olson led the team in scoring and Flood, Rodman and Larsen led the team in rebounding. The 11U team is coached by Scott Stucki.
