We are the Champions!!!
Here we are in Preston at UCLAN (University of Central Lancashire) before the game to win the Cup. This photo was taken for the newspaper.
We haven't had to deal with injuries much this whole season, but poor Nickie twisted her ankle. It was not a pretty sight for her, as even the next day it is turning colors.
Sitting next to the score table helped me a lot, as I could keep the stats much better. The girls from Leeds Metro Carnegie are pictured in the background.
The game was quite intense! This team was our toughest competition and the girls had to really want to win. Coach Steve was in there encouraging the girls, "Do you want this win?" YES!!
The final score board showed the vast excitement of the Lancaster Women's Basketball Team.
The girls that played and the ones on the bench all were thankful that they could represent their school and win!!!
Here are the girls and Coach Steve with their medals for winning the Cup. Do you think they are excited?
Referee Mansoor had officiated all our home games. He encouraged the girls and let them know of their integrity in the game and he was proud of them, even if he had given them fouls during the season:)
Now we have a small break, but need to get ready for the 'War of the Roses,' which is Lancaster University (red rose) against York University (yellow rose) in May.
