In a close game between West Tisbury and Oak Bluffs last month, the West Tisbury middle school boys basketball team won 45-38 to take the all-Island middle school tournament. 

The Hawks and Blazers faced off on Feb. 6 in the middle school boys basketball finals. Both teams finished their regular seasons 7-1, each with their only loss to the other. 

West Tisbury took a slight lead early on, and was able to maintain it throughout, but it was a nail biter until the final buzzer. 

The game crowned the Hawks as tournament champs.
