VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO RECOGNIZE AND COMMEND THE SOUTHSIDE HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS BASKETBALL TEAM ON ITS IMPRESSIVE WIN OF THE 2010 CLASS AA STATE CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE, AND TO HONOR THE PLAYERS, COACHES, AND STAFF ON AN OUTSTANDING SEASON.
Whereas, fully prepared for the challenge, the Southside High School girls basketball team crowned its excellent 26-4-0 season by capturing the 2010 Class AA State Championship title, defeating Marion 66-64 at Columbia's Colonial Life Arena on Saturday, March 6, 2010; and
Whereas, excitement over this title win was especially intense because it made school history, marking Southside's first girls state basketball championship, and victory was all the sweeter because the Lady Tigers overcame the defending state champions to take the crown; and
Whereas, the championship game demonstrated the Lady Tigers' 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 Lamont Wakefield, showed fans and foes alike that Southside's victory was no accident; and
Whereas, adding further luster to already scintillating season, Coach Wakefield was named 2010 Region II 2-A Basketball Coach of the Year; and
Whereas, the House of Representatives takes great pleasure in recognizing the young women of the Southside 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 Southside High School girls basketball team on its impressive win of the 2010 Class AA 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 Carlos Brooks and Coach Lamont Wakefield of Southside High School.
