Three Solana Beach CATs basketball teams traveled to Maui for the Maui Summer Classic Basketball Tournament.  The CATS competitive basketball league has been traveling for eight years with their 8th grade boys teams and this year traveled with three teams, including for the first time their girls 7th/8th grade team.

The trip proved to be a magical one with each team winning the championship game!  The win only became sweeter when the Mayor of Maui, Alan Arakawa, presented the game ball and awards to the teams. The location of the tournament was the historic location of the EA SPORTS Maui Invitational, where 99 colleges representing 23 conferences and 40 states have competed.
