Junior basketball: Local boys win title

By Michelle Warford, parent of a player

With a 42-40 victory over Los Gatos, the Redwood Chapter of the National Junior Basketball League's third- and fourth-grade boys division took the Silicon Valley All-Star Championship on Sunday, March 16.

The 9- and 10-year-old members of the All-Star team reside in Woodside, Portola Valley, Atherton and Menlo Park. They beat out Palo Alto and West San Jose on Saturday to play Los Gatos in the final championship game.

Next up, the team will compete in the NJB National Championship Tournament in Anaheim March 28-30.

National Junior Basketball is a national youth league with more than 25,000 participants in six states.
