The Neuqua Valley girls’ varsity team just completed their 2013-2014 season with a record of 20-4. They were undefeated in conference play and made their way to the state playoffs where their season came to an end in the 4A super sectionals. This team spent the entire season working towards the state playoffs and they were able to accomplish that goal with hard work and a renewed dedication to practice.

Aside from working hard to attain success on the court, these team members regularly work even harder away from the court. Team members offer their time to mentor youth basketball programs and serve as coaches and referees in their spare time. Players also belong to school clubs and volunteer in their communities.

As a Chicago Sky “High School Team of the Week” award winner, Neuqua Valley High School is invited to enjoy a Chicago Sky game, where they will have the opportunity to watch the world’s best female basketball players. During the game, they will be honored on court.

All teams that compete in IHSA 1A, 2A, 3A or 4A competitions are eligible to win a weekly honor. Nominations from parents, coaches, school faculty members and players are welcome and should be completed on the Chicago Sky website through March 12.

At the end of the 10-week program each weekly winning team will be entered to win the “High School Team of the Year” award for 2014. The winner, determined through online voting, will be announced at halftime at a 2014 Chicago Sky game.
