Most Holy Trinity JV Girls Basketball team has enjoyed a great deal of success the past two years. The girls have posted 19 wins against a single loss, winning the regular season and tournament championships both seasons. The girls attribute their success to being close as a team, embracing the feeling of being friends, not just team mates. “We never yelled at each other”, said Madison Delgado. “Whenever someone was down, we always tried to encourage them.”
The girls are not only high achievers on the court, but also in the classroom. Their collective grade point average this school year is 94.5%. The teachers allow the girls to help each other, so when one of the girls finishes an assignment, she will go and help others. They also make flash cards for different subjects that are shared among the team members. In the evenings, when it is time to do homework, the girls communicate over assignments via calls and text messages.
The team is coached by Mr. Jerry Sanchez. Team members are Brooke Burt, Danica Burt, Myanna Carroll, Isabel Delgado, Madison Delgado, Gissel Perez, Ariana Rodriguez and Cassandra Sanchez. Interestingly enough their only loss, a 2 pointer to St. Matthew, may have made the difference in the way this season finished. The loss brought us closer together” said Brooke Burt. “It helped us work harder because we wanted to do well for each other. “
