Chicago Sky High School Team of the Week - Taft - February 11, 2009

The Chicago Sky would like to congratulate the girls’ varsity team from Taft High School for being named the Chicago Sky High School Team of the Week for February 10, 2009.

At the end of last month, the Eagles won the Chicago North Conference Championship after playing an incredible five games in five days. Through this, they showed that heart, sportsmanship and love of the game are necessary components for a successful season.

With a 21- 4 record, the Eagles are working hard to prepare themselves for the upcoming IHSA playoff games and expect to prove that they have what it takes to go all the way. While the team works hard to prepare on the court, the Eagles also boast eight players on the roster with a 3.0 GPA or higher.

The Chicago Sky wishes the Eagles the best of luck as they enter post-season play and thanks them for their dedication to basketball and academics.
