High School Team of the Week December 18, 2007- Stevenson High School
The Sky congratulates the Stevenson High School Lady Patriots, its third High School Team of the Week." It is the Lady Patriots intensity and commitment to teamwork not their record -- that sets this team apart.
The Lady Patriots are a young team with only 6 of 14 players returning from last years varsity team. Whether they are winning or losing, the bench is always lively and supportive and the players intensity on the floor is consistent. This team makes a huge effort for its players to bond and offers support for the younger players through weekly team dinners and carpooling. Before the first game of the season, each girl picks the name of a teammate and writes her a letter listing her strengths and offering her support throughout the year. According to the nominations from coaches, teachers and fans, these players are great students, respectful members of the community and role models for younger girls. Not only do the Lady Patriots support one another but they support members of the Lincolnshire community through their Give program. This year, the team chose to adopt a family for the holidays in hopes of making their season a little brighter.
The Sky wishes the Stevenson Lady Patriots the best of luck and thanks them for their hard work and their efforts to make their community proud.
