July 5th – 7th Weekend Tournament Recap

NOVA Cavs 16U-Callaghan’s team winning the Silver Championship of Big Shots Carolina Invitational Tournament at Southern HS in Raleigh, NC this past weekend


Raleigh, NC / Boyds, MD / Upper Marlboro, MD –  Six of the NOVA Cavs teams were in action this weekend.

Our 16U-Cavs Callaghan’s team won the Silver Bracket Championship in the Big Shots Carolina Invitational at Raleigh, North Carolina.  After losing the opening round game to Garner Road – West, Cavaliers won three straight games over Garner Road – Whitley, Triple Threat Triumph and Big Shots Elite West Virginia.  The Cavs finished 3-1 in one of the best events in the east coast.  They will look to carry this positive momentum as they continue on in July.

The 13U-Cavs DeSenti, 15U-Cavs Sullender and 16U-Cavs Gray Mendes also performed admirably down in Raleigh, NC.  All the teams competed hard on the court and had an amazing time visiting Duke University!

Both of the 17U Cavs teams were also in action this weekend in local tune-up events.  17U-Cavs Fort’s team went 2-0 on Saturday with wins over Global Squad – Respass and Southern Maryland Heat, while the 17U-Cavs Lin’s team went 3-0 with wins over Metro All Stars, WDBA – Diggs and Global Squad – Markos.

Next weekend, six of our oldest age groups in the Cavs program will participate in the Hoop Group Summer Jam Fest at Spooky Nook in Manheim, PA.  Good luck to all the teams!!

Go Cavs!
