Claiborne Sparks Complete 2006 Season

Posted by Charlesetta Lavergne at Aug 28, 2006 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )
Congratulations! The team completed its second season of existence. We had a very good season. We had some exciting and exhilirating games. The team was undefeated at the Governor's Games. We placed 5th in a field of over 15 teams in the state tournament. We also played much older teams. We won some and lost some. The team competed in nine tournaments listed below. * The Bayou Flames Easter Classic * Strawberry Classic * The Bayou Flames Invitational * Team Louisiana Invitational * Governor's Games * Acadiana Stars Invitational * AAU State * Bayou Flames Summer Shootout! * Prime Time Sports National Championship Thanks to all team members for a great season! Aaliyah, Breanna, Brianna, Cierra, Conswanus, Kascity, Jasmine, Meghan, Monique, N'Kendra, Shakira, Skylar, Tashara and Toni. You were great! Next year we plan on competing in more tournaments in-state as well as out of state. Parent participation and support is a must! Contact Coach Claiborne for more information.
The team returned on Sunday from competing in the Prime Time Sports Nationals Championship tournament held in Dallas, Texas.

It was the first nationals competition for the team. Not bad for the second year of existence for us! We are very proud of the girls and their spirited play. We are looking forward to more out of state and national competition next year!
 
In the meantime, girls get ready for 2007!
