St. Hilary CYO's eighth-grade girls basketball team wins championship


The St. Hilary CYO eighth-grade girls B-division East basketball team completed a dominant season March 19 with a 25-24 win over St. Raphael CYO West in the 2017 Marin Catholic Youth Organization championships.

Coach Keith Stimson said the girls relied on their team-first, up-tempo style of play throughout the season to finish with a 7-1 record. Entering the playoffs, St. Hilary took out St. Rita CYO on March 11, then St. Raphael East the next day to earn a championship berth against St. Raphael West.

Stimson said the final match featured strong performances up and down the roster, including: Annika Carlson's tenacious point-guard play; a big three-pointer from Delaney Carlin in the fourth quarter; strong inside play from Ava Shaw; Livy Selden, who went coast to coast after a blocked shot; aggressive rebounding from Izzy Soja; and strong defense and hustle from Delaney Allen.
