District Champions! After a closely contested first quarter, the Morris Jeff Pelicans relied on a balanced attack from their veterans to pull away from tournament host St. Charles and cruise to a 71-42 victory in the District 11-2A championship game on Saturday, February 20. Four seniors scored in double figures for the Pels, as Corey Givens and Joseph Irvin led the way with 12 points each, followed by Laundale Galmore’s 11 and Leonard Howard’s 10. With the win, the Pelicans finish the regular season undefeated in district play, with an overall record of 20-5, and will now take their 14-game winning streak into the state playoffs next week. Brackets will be announced on Monday, but Morris Jeff is expected to host a first-round game on Thursday or Friday. Updates will be posted soon, but you can count on the game being live-streamed from the Morris Jeff Athletics YouTube page.
