The Redhawk 14s had a terrific end of season tournament in St. Louis. After winning their division with 3 games, each by 70 points, they were able to match up against the champion and runner up from the other 8th grade division. At the end of the day, the Redhawks had won 5 in a row, beating all contenders, and made some new fans! It was a fitting end to an impressive run. Redhawks won their last 12 games convincingly. Team Captain Kenner Sernel ended his three years with the Redhawk organization leading his squad to victory. Two year Redhawk veteran Harrison Kelly was a scoring machine over our last 2 weeks, with a career high 39 point, 8 three point performance along the way. Jonathon Duncan continued to stuff all the stat categories. Daedrick Cail was a relentless force. Point guard Wes Taylor and Stretch forward Cameron Matthews were awesome additions to the crew for St. Louis. Big minutes and key contributions from Will Griffith and Jett Hatfield were key. All in all, a great weekend.
The Redhawks 14s finished their fall/winter Memphis season with 5 wins to take the War Eagle Winter Hoopfest Championship. The tournament was capped off with a 59-38 victory over Let if Fly. Now it is on to St. Louis next weekend for the Reebok Series Winter Nationals. Winter Hoopfest 2016
This year’s Nolen Wilson Memorial Award for Contribution to Youth Basketball was presented to the family of Monte Sernel, the late father of Redhawk captain Kenner Sernel. Kenner and his family were on hand for the ceremony at MBCC on Saturday, 12/19. It was a nice moment, remembering Monte’s great spirit.
The 14 and under Redhawks put together three convincing wins over Houston Middle, Memphis Kings, and X Factor to win the War Eagle Preseason Hoopfest. Great performances up and down the bench, tough defense, and high energy have already become the calling card for this squad. Looking forward to a very successful season!
