Middle School Girls’ Basketball games

The girls’ Varsity middle school team upset Catherine Cook Friday night.  In the pursuit of the win, the girls overcame great adversity: Catherine Cook was a high seed, and they had home court advantage.  The girls ended up taking second place in the conference tournament.  They played a spirited game against an undefeated Near North Montessori in the championship match.

Middle School Boys’ Basketball games

Chicago Waldorf School hosted games against Ancona Thursday night. Both games were exhilarating contests that unfortunately ended in defeat for the Thunder. But the place was rockin’, as both boys’ games were very exciting!

High School

The Blizzard of 2011 led to many games being canceled last week, but the high school basketball teams were able to get in a few games:

High School Girls’ Basketball

The high school girls’ basketball team competed in their last home games, with exhilarating matches against the Stingers of St. Scholastica and the Griffins of Roycemore. The girls’ team finished their season at the Lycee Academy by losing narrowly to The Flames. The team had a slow start in November, and we are very proud on how well they finished the season. Abigail Dancey, our Head Coach, did an outstanding job developing the girls during the year, with the young women demonstrating significant gains in basketball fundamentals. In addition, the team had great overall spirit and exhibited outstanding sportsmanship.

High School Boys’ Basketball

The high school boys hosted the Lycee Academy last Friday. They almost pulled out the win playing a very energetic game. The team was weakened by top players taking ill and being unable to play in the game. The team is looking forward to playing the Lycee Academy again with their full team in the conference tournament during the first week of March.
