City Council Lauds Rogers Girls Basketball Team for Stellar Season

The team went undefeated and showed sportsmanship on their way to the school's first Division II girls championship.

The Rogers High School girls basketball team was lauded by the City Council recently for the completion of their 22-0 season that ended with the team capturing the state title with a win over St. Raphael Academy on March 22.

"In winning the school's first ever girls basketball championship, Coach Frank Brow, his staff, and most importantly, the Rogers Vikings Girls Basketball Team have added to the excellent tradition of Rogers basketball," a resolution of the council states. "It is also important to recognize the role the support of the team by family and friends played in their victory."

Mayor Harry Winthrop said in comments before the resolution was passed that the team's season and win are "unprecedented" and the girls showed great sportsmanship.

"We're proud of you not only as a team and accomplishments as players but the way you conducted yourselves all season," Wintrhop said, noting that's what people have been mentioning around town.

The girls are: Elizabeth Jackson, Josie Chavez, Brianne Morgera, all captains; and Marlen Oliva, Quiara Brooks, Sarah Morris, Khadesha Stubbs, Natassia Russell, Aliyah Jones, Maeve Byrne, Shay Greenman, Juliana DiMeglio, Eliza Lopes, Zhana Brown and Amanda Estrella.

The City Council has really found something they're good at here. If the City Council can now spend their time recognizing the exceptional and productive people in our society, and avoid making financial decisions, I think this City may have a bright future.

Well deserved girls! You earned the recognition. Regardless of financial decisions - the city was correct in recognizing these amazing young women!
