North Tartan 9th Grade girls strike again

Lake Buena Vista, FL– North Tartan has struck again, except this time in the AAU Girls Basketball 9th Grade Super Showcase.

The girls from Minnesota took on Central Florida Elite Friday afternoon at the ESPN Wide World of Sports. To get to the championship game, North Tartan had to get through a tough Lady Gauchos team from New York. They squeezed by 47-45.

In the championship game, it was a different story. North Tartan came out with a mission– grabbing every rebound and playing tough defense. They went into the half up by more than 15 points. In the second half, Central Florida Elite would begin to close the game, but the girls of North Tartan were relentless. They went on to win the 9th Grade Super Showcase title 63-46. This was their second title, as they were crowned 9th Grade National Championships a week earlier. Congratulations to the girls of North Tartan, it’s a tough feat to accomplish!
