Week 3: Glenbard East Lady Rams
The Chicago Sky has selected Glenbard East High School as the third weekly winner of its 2015 “High School Team of the Week” competition. They earn the honor after being nominated for outstanding efforts and achievements within their team and local community.
The Glenbard East Lady Rams’ motto this season is “One Team, One Dream.” The Lady Rams emphasize team effort and positive attitude as their keys to success. As a result of their unselfish play, the Rams are off to the school’s best start in recent years. They are currently 4-4 on the season after placing 4th in the Rachel Bach Tournament. In their eight games this season they have had four different players lead the team in scoring.
Off the court, the Lady Rams are focused on academics and community involvement. Almost all of the players on the Rams roster were named to the All-Conference Academic Team last year. The team offers a daily study table following practice for anyone who needs extra assistance with their schoolwork. In addition to striving for academic excellence, the Lady Rams give back by hosting a Toys-for-Tots drive every December to bring holiday joy to local families.
Glenbard East joins Oswego High School and Luther North College Prep as 2015 award recipients. As a Chicago Sky “High School Basketball Team of the Week” award winner, the Glenbard East Lady Rams are invited to enjoy a Chicago Sky game, where they will have the opportunity to watch the world’s best female basketball players. At halftime of the game, the team will be honored at center court.
