Castle Boys Conquer the Hudson Valley Showdown
announced June 2, 2014
Castle’s boys teams dominated the Zero Gravity Hudson Valley Showdown this past weekend, taking championships in the 14U, 16U and Varsity competitions and going undefeated in five games. The 15U just missed out on completing the sweep by going 2-1 but failing to make the playoff rounds. As the boys round the final turn and head towards the Summer tournaments, Hudson Valley proved to be a fantastic prep stage.
The 14U squad gelled with a relentless defense, a sound running game and well-orchestrated offensive sets. The team built momentum throughout the tournament and beat a tough Newburgh Zion Lion team in the final. The 16U team played great ball throughout and avenged an early season loss in the process. Likewise, the 17U team continued its fantastic play, going 14-2 over the past few weeks, and sweeping to another championship.
The tournament also saw the 8th Grade girls and 4th grade boys play hard and take away some victories. The future looks bright on the girls and younger sides.
This week, the 14U boys play in the Rumble in the Bronx while the older boys tilt in the Summer Kickoff.
