Loyola Academy sponsored an eighth-grade basketball tournament on Dec. 11 and 12.  School District’s 65 teams performed very well.  Chute Middle School won the overall Championship and Nichols Middle School won the Consolation Bracket.  The tourney featured 32 teams from Chicago area public and private schools.
