ROXBURY, Mass. – You might call 2015 the year of the Spartan at the Hoopville Spring Finale. Sunday’s string of championship games at least started out that way, before other champions new and old were crowned to close the day.
The Boston Spartans have played in the event often, and have won a championship in the past. This time around, they jumped up their total in this event in a big way, taking home the first five of Sunday. It marked the first time a program won in more than four age groups (in 2011, Expressions Elite won in four). They pulled out some close games along the way with a lot of the city watching.
