BBall!

The 2016 Fuerza Basketball just finished the season with the school's largest and most winning team. The biggest success of their season though, was in the determination and joy each athlete brought to every practice and game. The tone for this success was set by our fabulous coaches – Joe Sherman P'17, Liz Little P'18, Alex McGough P'16, and Adam LeVasseur P'16. While the eighth and seventh grade players honed their on-court skills, the sixth graders were introduced to a sport from which they learned more about themselves as athletes. 

There are many thanks to bestow: to our coaches for leading our players through a fabulous season; to our transportation coordinator who got us where we needed to go; to our uniform coordinator for keeping the numbers and sizes straight; to our end of season hosts for opening their home to pizza and party; to all of our parents and guardians who drove our players all over the city and beyond; and to our fans!

The mighty Fuerza Basketball teams ended their seasons on March 17th against two very strong Seattle Hebrew Academy teams. The D1 team barely lost a close game and the D2 team came away victorious. Every school we played against this season was overwhelmed by the number of girls we had participating. We had a total of 29 players between both teams and every player participated fully in each game. It was amazing to see the development of our teams as the year progressed, culminating in impressive performances in the final game. Special thanks to all the coaches and the many parents who helped support us especially Leigh Hardiman, our transportation coordinator. See you next season with even more girls participating!
