January 5, Wood at Chipman – Boys

The Alameda Education Foundation’s Middle School Basketball program began with a fast-action, competitive match as the Chipman Middle School Cougars Boys teams hosted Wood Middle School.

In “A” team action, the Cougars took an early lead, but the Wood Beavers made steady gains to come out on top, 38-29. Both teams showed up with springs in their feet and some pretty impressive passing prowess for the first game of the season.

In “B” team action it was Chipman over Wood, 40-29.

January 6, Chipman at Wood – Girls

In “A” team action, Wood showed a lot of experience as they displayed great team coordination to score 42 points to Chipman’s 24. Wood’s Layla Stebbins was the go-to girl with fast breaks and key shots while Chipman’s Destiny Kelly, only a sixth grader, impressed the crowd by scoring 20 points.

The “B” team game was a highly defensive game with Wood inching out ahead, 13-9.

January 8, Wood at Lincoln – Girls

A strong Lincoln “A” team took the lead early and kept it to come out ahead, 21-10.

The “B” teams played a high action, fast-paced game with Lincoln over Wood, 21-17.
