In Starters, Jalynn Presley, who won the 2015 Little Timers speed dribble, earned the Starters (second and third grade) Speed Dribble trophy and Julia Nanos collected the Starters Shooting championship.
Following completion of the Futures Game and Starters skills competition, Schoonmaker and Stamford Peace squared off in a classic Senior League championship game.
