Team Tennessee Glory 16U excels at Nike Nationals Invitational
Team Tennessee Glory’s 16U grade teams traveled to the Nike Nationals Invitational in Chicago, IL. July 10 - 12 to compete against some of the best athlete and teams in the country.
The 16U team won their pool/division with outstanding performances by Jasmine Cincore (Briarcrest HS & Univ. of Nebraska commit), Raye Starks (Arlington HS), Courtney Banks (White Station), Grade Wade (FCA), Chyna Ellis (Arlington HS), Gabrielle Salazar (Briarcrest HS), Tenelle Walker (Overton HS), Shuntavia Rodgers (Bartlett HS), and Ashley Jackson (Ridgeway HS).
The team went 4-1 overall, and lead their bracket with the best overall record to win their section.
The teams successfully competed at this NCAA college exposure in front of over 200 NCAA Div.1 and Div.2 college coaches, competing at high-level college exposure events is a daunting task but the GLORY Girls met and exceeded the challenge. Additional thanks goes to coaches Wesley Cincore and Tom Jackson for their guidance and preparation of the teams.
The squad will attend the Basketball on the Bayou in New Orleans, LA. (July 22 - 25).
