Player Watch
Johns Creek’s 5/6th grade girls team has a really solid scorer on their hands. Tobi Owolabi showed that she’s one of the best players in the division by consistently providing scoring and great defense in her team’s wins over the weekend. She caught the attention of many in her 16 point performance against the
North Gwinnett Bulldogs and shined once again in their matchup with the South Forsyth War Eagles. Olowabi went for double digits in that game as well. We’ll keep an eye on Johns Creek and Tobi Owolabi. She’s this week’s one to watch.
Great Coaching
The Milton Eagles’ 5th-grade team was ready to play every time they took the floor this weekend. What we loved in particular about this group was their commitment to following the lead of their coach. The guys had high energy and play really well together, resulting in wins all weekend. Christian Edwards earned himself a spot on our Top Performers list this week after he went off for 23 points in their game against the South Forsyth War Eagles. Deuce Grayson also played well 11 points in the win. As this group continues to grow together, the guidance and direction of their coaching staff is sure to garner them much success in the GYBA league and beyond.
