What an accomplishment by our school's senior high girls basketball team - they won the gold medal yesterday in their CISAA championship playoff! Our CFIS girls played their hearts out. There are two elements to this win that make it even more amazing. One is that this is the inaugural season for senior girls basketball at CFIS. The other is that these "senior girls" are all in Grade 9, 10, and 11 - and their amazing 12-0 record is against teams made up of mostly Grade 12 students!
Special mention goes to Coach D. Mondaca, whose motto is, "Winning is not the goal - working hard is!", and Assistant Coach G. O'Reilly, for her breathing exercises, core work, and steady, calming influence. What fabulous role models - not just the coaches, but the team members themselves.
