Mitford has another banner to hang on the wall.
Mitford School was a packed house Friday night for the Junior Varsity A Girls Basketball divisional tournament. The Mitford girls went into the divisions ranked in first place playing Ecole Airdrie in the semi finals, winning 31-13 and advancing to the gold medal game against Chestermere Laker Middle School team.
The game was a nail biter, with the Mitford girls being able to come back from a 8 point deficit to win 20-18.
Nancy Dutchik, Mitford Principal and Jr Girls coach refers to the team as being a very determined group of girls. They set out the goals early in the year and worked hard to achieve them.
"They are not only great athletes, but they are great kids. It has been so much fun working with them this season helping them get to this point. They came out wanting to play, wanting to win and that's what they did."
The Mitford team are hoping to head to the Zone tournament in March.
