Last year, they won the GHAC championship as seventh graders and returned for another strong season this year. A highlight of this season was their third-place finish in the Fort Bend Christian Academy tournament, where they defeated Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart, River Oaks Baptist School and Trafton Academy. The team is (top row, from left) Mia Kalinsky, Eliana Haas, Taya Kol, Simone Newar, coach Angie Gubitz, Zoe Tuchshneider, Hayley Selzer; (bottom row, from left) Samantha Sorkin, Bergen Friedman, Maya Levy, Carly Schneider, Cassidy Rubenstein and Kayla Frank.
