Team Toledo Takes 8th Place at AAU Nationals

Team Toledo-8th Place Finish

This past week, Coach Eddie Norrils' 4th grade Team Toledo squad captured 8th place at the AAU Nationals in Cincinnati. Norrils' squad got off to a blistering 5-0 start, but hit a wall after the competition stiffened. Team Toledo initially stumbled in the Elite 8 after loosing to Wisconsin Playground Elite, the eventual tournament champions  by 31 points. In the opening game of the consolation bracket, Team Toledo came up short to DC Assault by a score of 41-37.  In the  7th/8th place game, Toledo could not get on track, and went down 41-48. Team Toledo was paced by Zeb Jackson (4'11 PG Toledo) and Dominique Cole (5'7 PF Toledo). Both Ketaan Wyatt (4'11 PG Toledo) and Kendall Marshall (5'3 WF/PF Toledo) added valuable support. Congratulations to Coach Norrils, his players and fans for repping the state!
