The Jaguars 11th Grade team won the club’s first ever District Championship at the Division I level. Led by Head Coach Tina Nicholson the team cruised through pool play with three double digit wins. The girls followed that up with a 19 point victory over the Chester County Wizards in the distrist semi-final, setting up a finals showdown with a very talented Fencor team. The Jaguars led from the outset but were not able to build more than an 8 point lead against a determined Fencor squad. Fencor fought back hard and took their first lead at 35-33 with about 3 minutes to go but that lead was to be short-lived as Courtney Hinnant immediately drained a three pointer to give the Jags a 36-35 advantage that they would not relinquish. Kaitlyn Eisenhard hit four of five free throws down the stretch to seal the 40-36 victory. Sarah Payonk led all Jags scorers in the championship game with 8 points, all in the second half.

The Jaguars congratulate Tina, her staff of Aly Zajac and Kristin Blye, as well as all of the girls for this amazing team accomplishment.
