On Saturday, February 14th, the Jr. High Girls’ Basketball team battled it out against Tussey Mountain for the ICC Championship title with a 37-28 victory. The girls were awesome this season, ending the campaign with a record of 22-1!

Girls on the team included seventh graders Alli Campbell, Emilie Leidig, Brenin Abbott, Jaydyn Shuke, Macy Decker, and Olivia Musselman and eighth graders Mya Decker, Riley D’Angelo, Krystina Taylor, and Kara Engle.

I recently got to talk to 7th grader and starting point guard Alli Campbell about her team’s success.

What does it mean to you and your team to win the ICC championship?

It means that all of our hard work at practice paid off, and we worked together as a team to get to this point.

How did the team react when the game was over and the team won?

We were super excited and proud of ourselves!

I also got to talk to 8th grader Riley D’Angelo about the championship.

What does it mean to you to win the ICC championship?

Winning the ICC was an amazing experience. It is the first ICC championship, and I’m really glad that we won to represent our school.

How does it feel to be the best in the region?

It feels great! We worked hard all season and it definitely paid off in the end.

Congrats to the players as well as Coaches Conlon and Crain. We are all so proud of your accomplishments. Hopefully the team will continue their winning streak next year!
