Second weekend of games, and more medals collected. Congratulations goes out to the 8th grade boys burgundy, both 6th white and 6th navy, and 4th boys. On the girls side, 6th burgundy, 5th burgundy, 7th burgundy and 7th white all took home the CHIP. Great job players and coaches. Now it is Turkey Time!
What a great time to be THANKFUL! OTE has 35 out 35 freshman alums make their high school teams. This includes 8 JV and 4 Varsity members from 13 different high schools, (there were 4 families that did not respond). We are proud of each and every one of them and we are excited to see what they can do at the next level!
Over the last 20 years, more than 90 percent of OTE alums have gone on to play high school hoops at major programs across Chicago and the suburbs. Our training works because we are "Over the Edge on fundamentals."
Congrats to our 8th grade boys and girls! Can't wait to see you all bring your game to high school in a few months. We're proud of all of you. And thanks to coaches Brandon and Shawn (Girls) and Tom and Caleb (Boys) for their dedication to these talented athletes!
3/4th Boys Team celebrating tournament win May 7 with Coach Chris
OTE is proud to announce its latest championship team. The 7th grade girls team won the 2021 AAU state championship Division 1 by sweeping all four games it played May 1-2 in Rockford. Ill. The team is coached by Brandon Lathon and Shawn Cirton, and won each game by 10 or more points. The team prevailed by sharing the ball, playing tough team defense and winning the battle for loose balls and rebounds. Congrats to the girls!
Congrats to the OTE 7th grade girls, who finished 6th out of 34 teams in the National AAU championship in Knoxville, Tenn.
