The Varsity Girls Basketball team took home gold with a 6-0 record.
Over the course of the tournament, the girls set a tournament record of 30+ points in every game. In the semi-finals against Moscow, the team experienced a couple of injuries as well as a sudden fire alarm in the midst of the game. However, it did not distract the girls from winning the championship game against Bucharest, which the final score was 49-39. According to Coach Munnerlyn, “Last year, we had a varsity program that barely kept ten. This year, we kept 15 young ladies and played 25 basketball games. All the hard work paid off with coming together as a team, being the strongest team in the tournament, and ultimately winning the CEESA championship.”
