8th Grade Wins Fairfield County Basketball League Championship

Congratulations to our 8th grade boys for winning the Fairfield County Basketball League Championship on Saturday! They came back from 10 points down to defeat Westport by a final score of 50-41.

Andrew Levens led the way with 14 points. Timmy O’Neill led the defensive charge in the second half with steals everywhere and made clutch baskets, finishing with 7 points. Gavin Mertz had a timely floater in the final quarter, along with making all four of his free throws to seal the game. Carlo Noecker was a work horse inside drawing double teams on every possession. Tyler Geriak was scoring from both outside and inside. Jayden Wang and Mason Neely both contributed baskets of their own at key moments in the game.

They defeated Wilton 62-47 and Darien 51-49 to set up the Championship match-up with Westport.
