Besides being the conference champions, the girls had an undefeated season, winning all 12 games, a first for any sports team at Jack London Middle School.

"As parents we could not have been more proud of the girls -- they worked very hard as a team. It was exciting and fun to watch them play and achieve their goal," said London parent Lisa Cesek.

Bill Henderson, a sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade technology teacher at Jack London, coached the team. Team captain was Nansy Velev, who led the team and was chosen as M.V.P.
