Monticello girls' basketball makes a slam dunk

The girls’ basketball team at Monticello Middle School, affectionately called the Lady Cardinals, are the Jr. Lake Erie League Girls’ Basketball Champions for 2010. The 10:1 Lady Cardinals (13:1 overall) knocked off an undefeated Shaker Raider team to claim the title.

The victory was sweet as Shaker was the defending Jr. LEL Champion last year, and went undefeated during the regular season this year. The Lady Cardinals' only loss this year was to Shaker. Last year Shaker defeated Monticello in the championship.

Coached by Monticello teachers Angela Kirkland and Jason Jeske, the Lady Cardinals are enjoying their championship victory and were recognized during at the Heights Tigers home game on Feb. 6.

The 2009-2010 girls basketball team members are: Mikah Aldrigde, Daesia Avery, Jamilah Avery, Emonye Barner, Kierra Bolden, Shavon Castro, Ebony Coffey, Jasmine Crosby, Dolisha Moton, Jordan Pickens, Teddy Traylor, Yanique Watson and Darnisha Williams. Coach Jeske is also pictured.
