In just their first year under the newly formed Sequoia NJB Chapter (sequoianjb.org), the Sequoia 7th Grade All-Net A Boys, led by head coach Dele Sobomehin, beat Foothill for their first Section Championship, qualifying them for the National Tournament in southern California’s Orange County.
This was a nail biter of a championship game that went into TRIPLE overtime. After two timed overtime periods, an NJB official informs both coaches that the 3rd OT will be “sudden death”, something that was later disputed as not in accordance with the official rules.
Congratulations to all five Sequoia NJB teams for winning the 2011 Silicon Valley Championships! Wish them luck as they prepare to represent bay area at the All-Net National Tournament in Southern California this weekend. Two of those five teams, the fifth and seventh grade boys, are coached by Team Esface’s very own Tunde and Dele Sobomehin respectively.
