The Valley Strong basketball program recently took teams to the Seaside Tournament in Ventura. After a tough first game against Team Edge, the eighth-grade team earned wins against The Kiddz 14U, 51-30, and VC Elite, 44-36, setting them up against Valencia Vanguard for second place. The game went back-and-forth and came down to a buzzer-beater floater by VC who won, 49-47. The eighth-grade Valley Strong team took third place. The seventh-grade team had wins over Rising Stars, 33-28, and the Conejo Quakes, 48-24, getting it to a second-straight championship game against Big Picture Athletics (BPA). The game was close until a late run by BPA resulted in a 47-33 final. The seventh-graders took second place. The teams were coached by Matt Murphy and Andy Flores. “We are very proud of the boys,” Flores said. “They worked, hustled, fought, but most importantly, never quit playing hard.”
