CHAMPIONS!!!!!!!! – Cincy Finest Invitational

Greetings All,

CHAMPIONS!! That one word describes what we all are within the program. Our 8th grade team brought the 1st Championship Trophy home to Dayton and to our program. Our babies battled for four quarters with a very good team in SMAC Basketball Club out of Cleveland. What an exciting game to watch and help Coach Threats coach her team to a monumental victory. The kids gave it their all and played at a high level. The 8th grade parents were there in full support along with some of their family members who came to support our girls. I really was elated to see other parents and players from our program stay and support our team, even though their teams were done for the day. Special shout out to Coop for her play, her relentless effort changed the entire complexity of the game. Thanks to Mr. Powell for his due diligence in videoing all the games for our 8th graders.

The Silver team and the Juniors battled it out Sunday afternoon for a clash of two We Got Next teams. We took center stage and both teams did not disappoint the crowd that watched the game. The Silver pulled out a close victory, but our Junior team is steadily improving and competing every game. Coach Danielle Lewis and Coach Shatila Smith are doing a great job with these young ladies, I love how they compete. The most invigorating moment was after the game with the Silver, Purple, and Junior team along with coaches at center court did our program chant.. We absolutely loved it!! Photos coming.

I personally like to keep encouraging all of our young ladies to keep striving for greatness and never get discouraged at the outcome of the scoreboard at times. Every last one of you young ladies are improving each and everyday which is more important. I have been able to watch everyone play and yes all have improved since opening day of our program.

Lets work hard to improve this week, big exposure event in Chicago this weekend. Please all have safe travels on the highway. See you in Chi-town…

Yours In Hoops,

Coach Toliver
