University Girls Basketball: WE ARE CHAMPIONS!
There are many characteristics of a champion. By definition, a champion can be a winner of first prize or first place in competition. A champion can be a group of individuals that show superiority in character, class, and sportsmanship. A champion also honor’s their school and any organization they may represent by conducting themselves in a professional manner in the classroom and on the playing field. Here at University high school, the lady cougar’s basketball program is champions.
Over the past three years the lady cougars have compiled a 63-22 record. We have also won two district titles, two metro championships, and two regional playoff games during this period. We also have the three time metro conference player of the year who will be returning for her senior season. The lady cougars have shown superiority in character, class, and sportsmanship by having zero technical fouls called on any student – athlete during the past three years. The lady cougars exemplify these characteristics by running the Think Pink Classic with the proceeds benefiting the Kay Yow Fund. We were one of the first high schools to be fully endorsed by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) and the Kay Yow Fund. The girl’s basketball program also gives out a promoting athlete with sportsmanship award (P.A.W.S) after every game to the opposing team in recognition of playing like a champion. The award is given out every game by our captains despite the outcome, and is for the player that demonstrates all of the traits of a champion. Lastly, the student – athletes that represent the lady cougars are champions in the classroom and the community. All of the athletes on the lady cougar team have over a 3.0 grade point average. They are also very respectful in the classroom and are a part of many organizations that help the community.
There will be many teams that will deserve the honor to be dressed like champions by Allen Sportswear. Everyone that writes an essay will have many positive credentials listed on why they should be fortunate enough to receive this generous opportunity. University high school lady cougars would represent Allen’s Sportswear as a champion in every facet of the word. Champions should be given the opportunity to dress like it and play like it. At University high school, WE ARE CHAMPIONS!
