Tonight, the SDFAS Girls Varsity Basketball team made an unbelievable 2nd half comeback to win the league championship game against The Cambridge School. The team was trailing 8 -0 in the 1st half, before hustling to close the gap before half-time. Starting the 2nd half, the team was down 10-5, as they began to rally to get back in the game. The team continued to play with unparalleled intensity and heart, as they forced turnovers defensively, and converted steals into scoring opportunities. With 6:00 minutes remaining, Cambridge scored a basket making the score 15-12. The girls answered with their trademarked “sauvage” full-court defense, as Adriana Telenti pressured Cambridge’s number one player, and was a catalyst to spark a 5-0 scoring run for SDFAS. With 4:33 remaining, Noella Coiquaud confidently drained a deep 3-point shot, followed by a 2 point lay-up to give SDFAS the lead, 15-17. Emma Lhuiller scored a key basket stretching the lead to 4 points (15-19), with 1:47 to play. The Cambridge School didn’t stop, and shot a long 2 pointer from the wing to stay in the game, 17-19. The girls controlled the ball for the last minute, drawing fouls, getting offensive rebounds, and securing the victory for the league championship title. Congratulations to Maxine Arambulo, Emilie Otterson, Amandine Brissot, Kimy Ghalie, Alienor Calmejane, Emma Lhuiller, Adriana Telenti, and Noella Coiquaud for making school history by becoming the first basketball team to go undefeated AND win the league championship title.
