Blazers Memorial Tournament.
12.9.2017 - 12.10.2017
The team traveled to Brockton, MA to compete in the annual New England Blazers Memorial Tournament. Five teams from Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York competed in the 2 day tournament. After a long snowy weekend of basketball, the Spokebenders went 3 and 1 taking 2nd place in the tournament!
We're halfway through the season and the team currently has an 8 - 1 record. The December NWBA DIII rankings were recently released and the Spokebenders hold on to the #2 spot! With a handful of tournaments on the horizon, the team hopes to continue their winning ways and maintain a high ranking going into the national tournament in April.
Happy New Year.
Wishing all of our fans a safe and Happy New Year!
The Hospital for Special Care serves as primary sponsor of the CT Spokebenders.
