Springfield youth basketball team winning on and off the court


One youth basketball team is dominating their league.

The Raging Bulls have won 23 out of 24 games this season.

The team of 6th graders played in a tournament Monday night involving 36 total teams that runs over 3-weeks.

Boys and Girls Club Team Program Manager James Gutierrez said that basketball provides positive reinforcement for the players. He told 22News, “They find it encouraging to know that the coach is always on them about grades, about exercising and getting involved with other teams and players, and just enjoy having a conversation and make friends.”

We’re still waiting to hear if the raging bulls improved their record to 24-1.
