Payton's AAU team, Arkansas Wings Elite, traveled to Memphis, TN last week to compete in the National Championship Tournament. This team has only played together a handful of times over the past 3 months. In fact, this tournament was the first time ever that all 9 of these boys played together.
They started out a little rough, going 1-2 in pool play. This sent us to the Classic Bracket of the tournament.
Where they fought back hard, playing against some tough teams, and went 5-0.
And became NATIONALS CLASSIC CHAMPIONS!!
Not bad at all for a team that is just starting out. I was so impressed with the caliber of the players and coaches in the Wings organization. These boys are so talented and have an amazing future ahead of them!
