LIndsey Farris, the Spirit Team Coach, took the following video of the last plays of the game from a 2 free throw opp by CCHS thru the last 14.5 seconds. CCHS played against #1 seed, Orange Lutheran. The last 1/2 of the game was neck in neck the entire time with a spread of either 2 points or tied. They were tied 38 v. 38; two free throws brought us to 40 CCHS v. 38 OT; they scored a basket to tie up at 40 each with 8 seconds left; then we inbounded with 8 seconds left and scored at the buzzer to take the WIN!
Congratulations, and good luck to the entire team: Alexis Aquino, Katie Lin, Kelli Tademaru, Shannon Yahn, Taylor Tanita, Kailey Tooke, Gwen Machado, Lindsey Tanita, Kelsey Ueda (Captain), Kate Suyesugu and Megan Yoon.
