New Haven, Mo. - The New Haven 4th grade girls basketball team ended their season with a third place finish in last weekend’s Rolla Tournament after winning the Bourbon Tournament on Saturday, February 15th and an overall record of 16-7.

The Lady Shamrocks cruised passed Spring Bluff 38-4 in the first round of the Bourbon Tournament, advancing to the semifinals where they beat Pacific 22-12, setting up a rematch from earlier this year with Steelville.

Steelville beat New Haven in the St. Clair tournament but this time it was the Lady Shamrocks who came out on top in a nail bitting win 14-11, capturing a first place finish.

In their final tournament last Saturday, February 22nd at Rolla New Haven lost their first game in pool play to Rolla in another nail bitter, 8-6.

New Haven quickly bounced back with a 19-7 win over St. James - White, which put them in the third place game against St. James - Red.

The Lady Shamrocks ran over St. James - Red 25-3 and a strong finish to what was a very successful season.  It will be fun to see what the future holds for this group of young and talented girls.
