SPOKANE — The Butte Lady Irish claimed the title in the sixth-grade girls’ Elite Division over the weekend at the Spokane Hoopfest.
Mya Stenson, Tylar Clary and Rachel Van Blaricom went undefeated through the 14-team division. They won three games on Saturday and two on Sunday, beating the Shooting Starz in the championship game of the double-elimination tournament.
The three girls were also part of a highly-successful traveling team this past basketball season. Hoopfest is the largest 3-on-3 street basketball tournament in the world.
