On June 9, “Super 7” beat the Aztecs 35-24 to win the Master Sports 2014 Spring Basketball Open League championship for third/fourth grade.

Under the leadership of co-coaches and sisters Sajani and Shilpa Patel, Super 7 learned early on that the key to victory was working as a team and focusing on the fundamentals.

Made up of boys ages 8, 9 and 10 from the Rancho Peñasquitos, Carmel Valley and Sorrento Valley area, this team has been together for only one season but exhibited great chemistry on and off the court.

“Super 7” lived up to its name with every one of the seven players contributing points and rebounds to seal the victory over the Aztecs.

The championship game was close the entire first half, with Super 7 gaining a slight lead at halftime, 15-14. About midway through the second half, “Super 7” broke the game open and never looked back.

The championship game capped a fantastic season for the team with a final record of 7-1. The fact that every member of the team scored in this game is what makes this team “Super.” Congratulations to “Super 7!”
