On Sunday, June 24, the Elmhurst Airborne basketball took part in a fundraiser to support Alex’s Lemonade Stand. It took place in the Campbell Gymnasium at York High School.

The event featured Clay Custer and some of his Loyola University Basketball teammates providing an afternoon of instructional guidance in the game of basketball. There was also a Q&A session, a chance for autographs and giveaways. All proceeds were donated to the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, which supports the fight against children’s cancers.

 

Sixth grade girls team wins state 24-18

The 6th grade Girls Elmhurst Airborne basketball team was part of a select group of qualified teams from Illinois that recently participated in the Inaugural 2018 Illinois Middle School Basketball Championship in Rockford.

In pool play, the Airborne girls easily handled the Lincoln Way Wildcats 40-20, in their second game versus the Hampshire Jr. Whips, Airborne won 29-13. With these two wins, the Airborne girls were seeded second going into the championship round of four teams. In the semifinals Airborne won 33- 25 over the OYA Lightning to advance to the championship game versus the Park Ridge Sky. Even though the Park Ridge Sky was averaging 44 points a game, the Elmhurst Airborne girls shut them down with superb defense and a patient offense winning the state championship by a score of 24-18.

 

An impressive season to celebrate

The Elmhurst Airborne 6th girls finished the year with an impressive record of 41 wins and 4 losses. Through the year the girls won the Palatine Tip Off Classic, the Elmhurst Airborne Winter Roundball Classic, the 12th Annual Fieldhouse Shootout held in the Quad Cities and the end of the year West Suburban Girls Basketball League Conference Tournament.   For more information, visit elmhurstairborne.org.
