Yesterday on July 17th was a big day for Camp Baco. The 14 and under basketball tournament was taking place at Camp Baco. Baco had two teams in the tournament. There was the A team and the B . team. The first games began at 10 AM. Baco was in both of them. The A team was playing Brant B and the B team was playing Brant A. When both games began it started to rain. The A team’s game was postponed because it was being played outdoors but since the B team was playing in the superdome their game went on. In the end though Brant A beat the Baco B team. After the game was over the Baco A team got their chance to play after the courts dried. They then defeated the Brant B team by over 20 points. The next game being played by Baco, was Baco A vs. Raquette Lake B. Baco A also beat them by more than 20 points. With that win Baco A was guaranteed a spot in the semi finals. The next game being played was Brant B vs Baco B. This game was for a chance to play Brant A in the semi finals. But at the end of game Baco B gave it a hard fought. The semi finals were then set. It was going tobe Brant A vs. Brant B and Baco A vs. Raquette A. After both games ended Brant A beat Brant B and Baco A beat Raquette A. The finals was going to be BrantA vs. Baco A. At finals the crowd was very big and loud. After half way through the first quarter Baco was down by over 10 but at halftime the Baco was only down six. During halfway through the fourth quarter things started getting very interesting. It kept becoming so close that Baco was only down two with three minutes left. But Brant was too strong and Baco found themselves down by 5 with 20 seconds left. But it was too late for Baco to comeback. In the end this was a great time for all the camp. Most of the camp was cheering Baco on. Even though Baco did not win in the finals they showed so much energy and everyone was very proud of them no matter what.
