VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO RECOGNIZE AND COMMEND THE SPRING VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL "LADY VIKINGS" BASKETBALL TEAM ON ITS IMPRESSIVE WIN OF THE 2009 CLASS AAAA STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE, AND TO HONOR THE PLAYERS, COACHES, AND STAFF ON AN OUTSTANDING SEASON.
Whereas, fully prepared for the challenge, the Spring Valley High School "Lady Vikings" basketball team crowned its superlative 28-1 season by capturing the 2009 Class AAAA State Championship title, defeating Orangeburg-Wilkinson 53-22 at Columbia's Colonial Center on Friday, March 6, 2009; and
Whereas, excitement over this title win was especially intense because it made school history, marking Spring Valley's first girls state basketball championship since 1978, and victory was all the sweeter because many members of this young team will return to play again next year; and
Whereas, headlined by sophomore standout Briana Robinson, who scored twenty points in the title game, the team powerhoused its way back to the top after a thirty-one-year hiatus; and
Whereas, the championship game demonstrated the Lady Vikings' top-drawer strength, agility, and skill, as well as finely honed team effort and good sportsmanship; and
Whereas, using these talents and attributes, the team, under the capable leadership of Coach Anne Long and her assistants, showed fans and foes alike that the Lady Vikings' victory was no accident; and
Whereas, the House of Representatives takes great pleasure in recognizing the young women of the Spring Valley High School girls basketball team for leading with excellence both in the classroom and on the hardwood and expects to hear of continued great achievements in the years ahead. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives recognize and commend the Spring Valley High School "Lady Vikings" basketball team on its impressive win of the 2009 class AAAA State Championship title, and honor the players, coaches, and staff on an outstanding season.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Principal Greg Owings and Coach Anne Long of Spring Valley High School.
