Congratulations to the KMS 8th Grade girls basketball team on their solid team victory yesterday vs. ChiChester.

The score was 30-9. All of the starting 5 scored. It was a break out game for Vivian Chiomento who led all scorers with 14 points and she was PERFECT from the line. Shut Down defense in the 2nd half allowed only 1 basket to be scored by Chi.

The team goes into the winter break with a 4 and 2 record. Great Job ladies!
