The West San Jose 6th Grade Girls basketball team, Intensity, went undefeated 5-0 to capture the NJB All-Net National Championship in LA this weekend. Playing 5 games in two days is challenging. There were a lot of tears of joy and pain; these girls gave everything they had and never let up.
Leading with strong defense, they had impressive first round wins over La Mirada 33-15 and Lemoore 34-19. In the quarterfinals of the championship bracket on Sunday, Team Intensity had a hard fought come from behind victory over Chino Valley 28-25. This set the stage for a back and forth battle that ended in a 24-23 victory over Niguel Aliso. Advancing to the finals, Team Intensity used aggressive defense and superior conditioning to claim the championship over Encinitas 28-22 in their third game on Sunday.
The chemistry and character of this team is truly amazing. Coach Bill and Lindsay stressed giving 100% and being a better team when you walked off court than when you went on. Team Intensity improved every game and brought home the championship to West San Jose.
