The Donaldsonville 8-year-old All Star team advanced to the Biddy National Championship Game. The team fought a hard fight. They battled to Mandeville in the Championship game on last Wednesday to lose only by three points.
“I am extremely proud of this young group of student athletes. These young kids are a very special group that showed tremendous effort to win basketball all season. The future is very bright for this group of student athletes,” said Coach Kenny Gray.
The team was named Runner -Up Division "A" in the 2011 Biddy Basketball International Tournament.
“I would like to say to them, always put God first and never let anyone tell you what you can't do or achieve in life.”
