The Union Democrat Sports Department

The Soulsbyville seventh and eighth-grade Falcons won the championship Saturday at Summerville Elementary's Bob Rundle Postseason Boys' Basketball tournament.

Summerville's sixth grade kept at least one trophy at the school, taking first place.

Soulsbyville's fearsome foursome of Jeff Allen, Ethan Milbourn, Dawson Robles and Connor Tipton were named All-Tournament and led the eighth grade team to a narrow 53-49 victory over Summerville.

Summerville was led by All-Tourney players Luke Fulkerson and Kevin Lund.

Jamestown defeated Sonora 65-60 for third. Rico Sanchez, of Jamestown, was named All-Tourney.

Mitchell Prevost, Octavian Hernandez and Paul Bruce led the Falcon seventh graders over Columbia 35-27 in the title game.

Columbia was led by All-Tourney players Jacob Gookin and Gus Marinovich.

Sonora, led by Midas Calindas, beat Tenaya 52-35 for third.

Beavers David Cazares, Devon Dye and Nathaniel Mata led the host school to the sixth-grade crown. They defeated Jamestown, and all All-Tourney players Jordan Johnson and Mark Camara, 35-26.

Sonora beat Columbia 26-22 for third. Braden Hobbs was All-Tournament.
