The fifth-grade LA Broncos Elite basketball team, part of the Amateur Athletic Union league, excelled recently by winning the BREC league championship in their age division.

Coached by Darlene Vessel and Tyler Martin Sr., the fifth-graders practiced at Northwestern Middle and Copper Mill Elementary school gyms during the fall/winter season and the All-Star summer season.

Tryouts for LA Broncos Elite teams, which include all Zachary coaches and players, will be held in November.
