Local NJB champions
Teamwork and talent led to triumph for a local Redwood NJB (National Junior Basketball) team when they were crowned champions of the 93 teams in the fifth/sixth-grade division of the Silicon Valley National Junior Basketball league. The team was undefeated, winning a pre-season tournament, nine regular season games, and the playoff tournament. In March they beat a Gilroy team in the championship game to close out their perfect 16-0 season. Shown here are, back row, from left, head coach Chris Francis, Max Huber, Daniel Burke, Heath Hooper, John Willard, Andrew Bergeron, and assistant coach Dan Burke; and front row, from left, Joshua Francis, Cole Taylor, Ethan Chai, Brendan McLaughlin and Andrew Steer.
