The 8th grade A basketball team had a ginormous win, knocking off the defending conference champ Kaneland last night.  After a strong first half, Charlie "Winter is Coming" Winterhalter helped lead the boys out of the gates with his "Joakim Noah" like energy.  Colin Sprague was a rock on both sides of the floor, and Billy Paris posted a monster game on offense and defense, shutting down Kaneland's best player.  It was an impressive team win as the crew knocked off Kaneland 36-26.
