Girls Mountain “A” Basketball Team Wraps Up Successful Season
The St. Margaret’s Mountain “A” Middle School girls basketball team wrapped up a successful season this week with a hard-fought showdown against St. Hedwig in the championship game of the Parochial Athletic League playoffs. Despite cutting a halftime deficit down to one possession in the third quarter, the girls’ second-half comeback ultimately fell short.
This Mountain “A” team is a group of girls in grades 7 and 8 who are passionate about playing and learning the game. The team showed a great deal of perseverance to overcome injuries and illnesses throughout the season, but whoever stepped on the court gave 100 percent. After starting the season 4-0, the girls had a tough two-point loss to St. Edward’s but then won the rest of their regular season games to capture the co-league championship trophy. The playoffs featured a winter-break victory against St. John the Baptist and a convincing win over St. Edward’s before the championship showdown with St. Hedwig.
With more than half of this team comprised of grade 7 girls and a group of grade 6 students who also share the love of the game, the future is bright for Tartan girls basketball. Great season, Tartans!
