Many 7th and 8th grade Rogers Park boys had an eventful day on Monday, January 21st, Martin Luther King Day, as Sullivan High School, Friends of Sullivan and the Chicago Park District co-hosted Sullivan High School’s First Middle School Invitational Basketball Tournament.
Kilmer Prevails at First Tournament
With Sullivan’s gym in the midst of remodeling, Willye B. White Field House at 1610 W. Howard hosted the competition, fielding four local schools: Joyce Kilmer Elementary School, Gale Community Academy, Jordon Elementary Community School and Cruz Acero School.
First round games pitted Kilmer against Acero and Jordan against Gale, with Kilmer and Gale prevailing.
In the consolation game, Jordan defeated Acero, leaving the championship game pitting Gale against Kilmer. In the hard fought game, Kilmer prevailed, 49 - 38, resulting with them winning the coveted title as champion of the First Sullivan Rogers Park Middle School Invitational.
Our Vision is to create a space where Sullivan's English Learning students can…
and learn in an area for individual mentoring and instruction and group work
away from the pressures of attending an urban school focused on a foreign language
