The 7/8 grade girls basketball team placed 2nd in the CPS Network 6 Invitational!
Two hard fought victories on Saturday took the SLES Lions to the championship game. Earlier in the day they had a 10-8 win over Irving; followed by a 13-9 victory over W Brown to get to the Finals. Though the matchup against Burr proved too much, during the playoffs the girls were challenged, yet kept their poise and stayed focused on basketball so gracefully!
The coaches shared that these young ladies are all the most improved players this season and can’t wait to see what each of them do in the future!
Coaches: Danielle Campbell (community member) & Arielle Johnson (parent of Dorian)
“These young ladies quickly figured out how to work as a team, how to recognize the strengths of others and how to stand tall in their own! We stressed the importance of professionalism, hard work and poise and the girls did just that.” – Arielle
