Sinai School Runs The Table!

stick_figure_lift_building_blocks_10482They did it!  The expression “running the table” is usually used in football, where there are relatively few games per season, to indicate an undefeated season all the way through the Championship Game.  Well today the Sinai School Team coached beautifully by Michael Gutlove and Chana Shields took their 11-0 record into the championship game of Girls Grades 4 to 5, and it was a nail-biter to the finish.  But our girls did it – they won the championship game to run the table and finish the season with a 12-0 record.  This is the fourth season of the MGBL, and it’s the first time any team has won the Championship with an undefeated record.

What a wonderful experience this has been for Kayla and her teammates.  The joys of going undefeated but more importantly, the life’s experiences of teamwork.  Kayla mastered her role of rebounder and defender, and managed some key baskets.  “Queen Rebounda”, we named her.  An incredible group of girls, with two incredible coaches, who played an incredible game, to cap one beautiful season.
