The Paterson Arts and Science Charter School Elementary Basketball team won the first championship in school history on Friday December 18, 2015. The Paterson Wildcats played New Horizon Charter School, in an epic duel of the top two teams in the league. New Horizon had previously beaten Paterson the week before to end the regular season, however, the Wildcats came out firing. Led by the teams two leading scorers Elijah B. (16 points) and Rod’Diere F.(10 points), the Wildcats went on to a dominate victory. The Wildcats showed great team defense, led by Joshua Duran, holding New Horizon to only 2 points in the first half and 20 overall. All the Wildcats should be recognized for an outstanding season; Nicholas M., Jayden G., Jah’Nasha B., Zoreya J., Bertin P., Daren S., and Machi S. The team’s coaches were Robert Dolce and Sean Drury. Once again, congratulations to all players and coaches.
