After defeating Crown Point in the state semi-finals, the Valpo Cru basketball team feel to Penn 29-24 at Spiece Field House in Fort Wayne. The team is comprised of kids from different elementary schools from around town. "It shows how sports can be such a great tool to bring together people who otherwise may not know each other," said coach Rob Behrend.
The team plays together from October through April at the Courts of NWI. The team, comprised entirely of fourth graders, faced fifth grade competition for the whole season! Great job by the kids from Valpo. Everyone is looking forward to an exciting 5th grade season this fall with the same kids!
