The São Paulo High School League (SPHSL) is a tournament in which the Lions participate every year. It consists of the international schools of São Paulo, including Graded, Chapel, EAC, PACA and St. Paul’s. The basketball season for the Varsity Girls so far has been a great success. We are currently unbeaten and have established a wide lead.
The first game of the season was against PACA when we won by 40x21. It was a great game in which the girls returned to the basketball mood after what seemed a relaxing holiday. Later on, we faced PACA again and won the game by 46x14.
We then played against Chapel school the girls victoriously left the game with an impressive score of 66x08. With incredible layups and shoots that allowed us to be in the most fortunate position. We then faced Chapel again later during the season where we won with a score of 50x10.
We played against the next school, EAC. We won with a score of 38x08. We faced the Giants once again and won the game 44x11.
We finally played against our rivals Graded Eagles. With anticipation, the girls were excited and dedicated to winning this game. After the long quarters, the Lions left Graded victorious with a score of 43x06. We then played against the Eagles once again at St. Paul’s where we were also triumphant by 40x22. Winning this game has allowed the St. Paul’s basketball girls to be classified in a formidable position in the finals, awaiting their adversary.
The final will be an exciting game for the Lions, being the second SPHSL final in the Lion’s Den. The girls are more than determined on earning the Gold medal no matter who they will be playing against, whether it is Graded or PACA.
Come and support the Varsity Girls: GO LIONS!
