The CJ Hawk/Lightning 2015 Martorelli team finished the July recruiting period with an 18-4 record. Starting off July in the Run for the Roses Tournament (Lexington, KY), the team posted victories over teams from Canada, West Va. and New York while losing a close playoff game to B-Wright Hoops (TX). The team moved on to Nashville, TN and competed in the Battle in the Boro Tournament where they went 4-1 in pool play before dropping a playoff game to a strong Comets team. The players managed to find some down time, enjoying their first country music concert in Music City. After a week break, the team moved on to the USJN 17U National Championships in Washington DC. Facing its toughest competition yet, the team emerged from pool play with a 5-0 record vs. teams from Arizona, MD., MA.,IN. and CT. before dropping a hard fought playoff game to a tough VA. Elite squad. The team finished the month going 5-0 at the BlueChip Basketball Season Finale Tournament in PA.

After the season ended, the team hosted their annual golf outing at the Greenbriar Golf Club in Monroe, NJ. The event, sponsored by Monroe Sports Center, L&M Graphics, Vision Graphics, and was a huge success and the perfect end to a very busy season. The team looks forward to competing in Spooky Nook, PA during the September open period.
