St. Mary's fifth and sixth graders competed at Loyola last Saturday.
They took second place losing 34-26 to a WEM team that came in with a 13-1 record and won this tournament as well.
They defeated Loyola and JWP to take the second. Last year this group competed in fifth grade tournaments and never finished as first or second. In their last five tournaments they have earned one second and one first place finish - big improvements from last year.
