Former Girls Basketball Players Inspire Varsity Girls Team
by Kathryn Magee - Monday, November 3, 2014
The 2014-2015 high school basketball season will mark fifty years since the Saint John High School Varsity Girls Basketball team has won a provincial banner. With ending that drought in mind, the Varsity Girls team had the chance to meet three of the alumni who helped lead their team to a provincial title. On October 27th, the twelve members of the team and their coaches met Bunny, Twila and Barbie who were all provincial champs fifty years ago. The girls had the chance to hear old stories from the alumni and discussed what it meant to be part of a provincial champion team. From this the girls learned many valuable lessons that applied to not only basketball, but life in general as well. The current team and former players bonded quickly and the alumni have been invited to return as special guests at the upcoming Memorial Game on November 19th. The team also hopes to host the ladies again this year at Harbour Station for the provincial finals.
