The boys' basketball teams travelled to YMLA last Friday night to close out the first round of district play on the road. The sub-varsity teams lost their games, with the JV game coming down to the last possession of the game and losing by a point. Kyu Wilson, Robert Jones, and Michael Richmond had great performances in the close defeat.
The varsity team played incredible defense throughout the night including holding YMLA to 3 points in the fourth quarter to come away with a 39-31 victory and spoil the YMLA homecoming. Junior Xavier McIntyre led the Cougars with 9 points and also added 7 rebounds. Our boys showed tremendous toughness and composure throughout the contest.
The win puts the Cougars at 3-3 in district play.
The Poly Nation would like to give a huge shout out to the Varsity girls soccer Team!! Keep up the good work ladies!!
I would like to inform you that this past weekend the JV Girls Soccer Team brought home the 3rd Place in the H&H Soccer Tournament.
The tournament took place in the soccer fields at Arlington Heights HS and Western Hills HS from Thursday 19th through Saturday 21st
With 3 victories and 1 lost our team took home the 3rd place in a highly contested tournament. The girls scored 10 goals during the tournament and received 5.
This is a big win for the girls and for the program therefore I believe that it has to be shared and celebrated.
