The East Ridge “Shockley” recently won the Championship of the 9-10 year-old division of the youth basketball league.
The Shockley _ consisting of only six players on the squad _ took down the LFO Walker, 30-11, to avenge the team’s only regular-season loss. What made the win even sweeter, said Coach Tony Shockley Sr., was the fact that his team’s regular-season loss to LFO was in double-overtime and the Shockley had only three players left on the floor due to three fouling out of the contest.
During last week’s championship game, Shockley said he had a conversation with the referees and them to “please let the kids decide the game.”
The Shockley finished the season with a 10-1 record.
