Ramsey has now captured back to back titles in the JR QOB tourney and now turn their eyes on repeating as JR LIT City Champs in February.
After the team comes back from Christmas Break, they will go into 2019 with an active Jcps games winning streak of 30 in a row.
Also would like to add that this 8th grade class at Ramsey has had a remarkable 3-year middle school run.
As 6th graders they won the JV City Title and went 14-0. While on varsity playing up that year, helped lead team to a 15-2 record. Last yr on Varsity as 7th graders went 21-0 and currently as 8th graders this year are 9-0. So as of right now have a middle school varsity career record of 45-2.
At this point their only two middle school career losses came 6th grade year playing up on Varsity and both losses were to the JCTMS team who went undefeated that season.
