Whereas, the South Carolina General Assembly takes great pleasure in learning that the Northside Christian School girls varsity basketball team of Charleston County took top honors for the second consecutive year at the state competition hosted by Grace Christian School in West Columbia on February 16, 2013; and
Whereas, in a nail-biting contest against Oakwood Christian School of Anderson, the Northside Lady Eagles defeated their worthy opponents 58-55 to bring home the state trophy; and
Whereas, Northside entered the championship game with an enviable record of 13-3, but by the end of the first quarter of play, the Lady Eagles had fallen ten points behind Oakwood; and
Whereas, by halftime, Northside's Lady Eagles had recovered their momentum and brought the score to a tie, but in the third quarter Northside scored no points and trailed Oakwood by thirteen points as they entered the final quarter; and
Whereas, Oakwood and Northside traded baskets in the fourth quarter until there was only a minute and a half left in the game, but within thirty seconds, Northside had reduced Oakwood's lead to nine points, and five seconds later, the lead was cut 6; and
Whereas, in the last twenty-five seconds of the game, Northside scored nine unanswered points, winning the 2013 state title game 58-55; and
Whereas, through skilled coaching, Head Coach Dan Smith and Assistant Coach Willie Potter used their own athletic skills and training to mold a team of champions and impart invaluable life lessons to these outstanding young athletes; and
Whereas, the South Carolina General Assembly appreciates the honor and respect that the Northside Christian School girls varsity basketball players have brought to their school and their community, and the members anticipate hearing of the continued success of these fine student-athletes in the future. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
