3/7/2014 Girls Basketball Season Leaves Lasting Impression of Success
When the horn sounded last Thursday night at Bloom Trail, it signified a 67-62 loss to Marian Catholic in the Illinois High School Association Sectional Championship, but the legend and memories that the 2013-14 girls basketball team created will last forever in Oak Lawn Community High School history. This team set a record for wins in a season with 28, advanced the farthest in postseason play of any Spartan girls basketball team and set a bucket load of individual game, season and career records. They will not be forgotten. "This group of girls brought Oak Lawn girls basketball to another level," head coach Janet Meyers said. "These seniors have set the bar high for future teams. We set a goal of advancing to at least the sectionals in the post season and the girls worked hard to achieve that goal."
