The Poland Middle School eighth grade boys basketball team completed their 2018-2019 season with a perfect 18-0 record by defeating the South Range Raiders 51-37 in the Northeast 8 Conference championship game played at the Poland Middle School on Feb. 13. JP Genova saved his best performance for the biggest game of the year when he scored a season-high 23 points. Luke Generalovich's strong contribution resulted in 11 points, while Bryce Barringer netted eight for the Bulldogs.
