HD Woodson, Paul VI score wins in 2012 City Title games
On Tuesday, March 20 HD Woodson's Lady Warriors captured their third city title in five seasons defeating the Lady Falcons of Good Counsel, 64-54. The Paul VI Panthers made history earning their first city championship outlasting the Coolidge Colts, 70-64.
"We knew our pressure would give them problems," said Coolidge HS head coach Frank Oliver. "Chanel Green is one of the best defensive players [in the city]."
Senior guard Chanel Green scored 11 points and grabbed 5 steals in the win.
On the boys' side, Paul VI took the court missing one of their key ball handlers, junior guard Stanford Robinson. It didn't seem to matter. The Panthers other starters stepped up and their reserves pitched in 14.
"You know, as a coach, when you get a chance to see your kids smiling for the last game they play of the season, it's really special," beamed Paul VI head coach Glenn Farello after the win.
