W.H. Day's intermediate girls basketball team has been named the Simcoe County CHAMPIONS!
The team traveled to Midland on Tuesday December 4. Their first match against Regent Park was a hard fought nail biting match, and the girls ended up losing by only one point, 23-22.
For their second game they faced W.R. Best. A physically tough game, the girls turned up their drive and came out on top winning 34-21. They met Ardagh Bluffs in the quarter final match. Team work and speed ended with another win, 25-15.
The semi finals placed them against Cookstown. After a close loss to Cookstown last week in the Areas qualifying game, the team was looking to redeem themselves. And they did just that, defeating Cookstown 32-18.
The championship match up led the Bolts to face Terry Fox Public School. Two evenly skilled teams, matching each other basket for basket throughout much of the game had everyone on the edge of their seats. The girls' desire to bring home that banner was so obvious with how hard they played. All of their hard work paid off, as they came out county champs winning 26-20!
Congratulations to everyone!
