West Jefferson Youth Athletic Association’s (WJYAA) fifth grade boys “A” Travel Basketball Team finished the season with a significant winning streak.

“This was a tremendous year for this group of boys. Since November these boys worked hard on the court developing the needed skills to compete with some tough competition. It’s hard work dedicating the needed time to pull off such a successful season. I congratulate Coach Steve Warner for the wins. Most importantly teaching and developing the boys for basketball and being a good dedicated coach,” said WJYAA President John Stanley.

“The boys played all season, ending with our Tri-County Travel League, Triad Classic and the 8th Annual Rider Roundball Roundup. WJYAA and the community is proud of these boys for such a remarkable season finishing their season in second place with some pretty tough competition.”

The boys continued to play and practice after March, entering The May Day Classic at Dennison University where they finished in first place, with the same group of boys playing under the Riders Elite Basketball Team.
