The Program Elite’s – Successful first trip across the border
The Program Elite, managed by Matt Cole and Shane Dennie formely known as SD Training took off to Roger Williams University in Rhode Island for their first tourney together where the team went 4-1 playing 12th grade teams from all over the East Coast.
A quality win came against BABC (Boston) a very well prepared and tough AAU club. The Program Elite Tough suffered a loss in the Semi finals against Beantown Bulls (Boston). This is good progress for a team that is simply comprised of players who go to a gym for training and now are able to put their skillsets to test.
Led by Sr G Jaaden Lewis (Thornlea SS) hit a game winner VS BABC. Harrison Laugalys (Twin Lakes SS) displayed steady post play and locked down 7ft Center for BAB. Indiana Rotondo ( St. Elizabeth CHS) showed great leadership commanding his team and leading by example with his guard play both offensively and defensively .
Coach Matt is very excited for his team’s next tournament. If you are looking to join this club, Program Elite will be hosting tryouts for their 16u and 17u teams in the near future. Tryout dates will be posted soon.
