    As the City League season has been progressing, a lot of changes have

    been made in reference to  standings and team aspirations. Teams like Team Big Money, Air Balls and Bronny Babes all currently sit at the top of the leaderboard for their City League division.

The team, currently in second, has a strong goal, explains sophomore Harrison Rabb, to win the playoffs. Rabb added on, “Our team is led by one of the most dominant basketball players of all time, Owen Durnin. Our season has been going well… [and] City league has been a lot of fun and really enjoyable.”
