The Triple Threat 6th grade girl’s team concluded their season this weekend at the Jam On It Memorial Day Tournament in Reno, one of the biggest tournaments on the west coast.

Saturday, in the seeding round, they lost a tough one 34-29 to the YBA Panthers from Sacramento.

On Sunday, the girls entered bracket play and blew out the Middletown Ice 35-11. That set them up to play the NEA Lions to see who would go onto the Championship game. It was a hard fought game with both teams going back and forth until NEA pulled away at the end and took the win 40-32.

NEA eventually went on to win the Championship for the tournament.

The girls rallied back from the loss, and having to play three games in one day, to defeat the Lathrop Thunder 30-4 setting them up for the third place game on Monday.

In the final game, the girls came out strong and fast to run away with the game and take the win 45-21 against the Folsom Fusion.

That concluded a season that saw the girls compete at a very high level all year long and grow as a team and as individual athletes. This was a very long basketball season for many of these dedicated girls. Many of them started school basketball in October then onto Lassen Hoops in January then onto Triple Threat. The majority of these girls got over 50 games in since October.

Coach Satica would like to thank the assistant coaches Arian Hart and Randy Harlan and all the parents for a great year.
