Bobby Zumph

Bobby and his basketball team won their league championship this past Sunday. In the championship game, they faced an undefeated opponent. They had lost to this team three previous times during the regular season. The team showed real perseverance and didn't let the earlier losses stop them.  In the final game, the boys played together as a team to overcome a 5-point deficit. They ended the season with a win and the first place trophy!
