Chicago Sky High School Team of the Week - Lincoln-Way East - January 20, 2009

The Chicago Sky would like to congratulate the girls’ varsity team from Lincoln-Way East High School for being named the Chicago Sky’s High School Team of the Week for January 20, 2009.

With a team motto of “You bring the spirit, we’ll bring the game,” the Griffins are showing just that. Their perseverance has led to victories and upsets that have given the team an impressive 16-2 record, their best start in school history.

Although the Griffins are lead by Senior forward Kersten Magrum, who will be playing basketball for the University of Illinois in the fall, this team has demonstrated that it takes a whole team to achieve what they have done this season.

In the classroom, the Griffins have eight out of their twelve varsity members boasting a 3.5 GPA or higher and are also members of the National Honor Society. The Sky would like to recognize and reward the Griffins for their perseverance on the court and in the classroom. Congratulations and keep up the hard work!

You can support the Griffins in action on:

Friday, January 23 @ Stagg High School, 6:00pm
Saturday, January 24 vs. Palatine High School (Sweet 16 Tourney), 12:30pm
Tuesday, January 27 vs. Bolingbrook High School, 7:00pm
