Make no mistake about it, the Divine Child High School girls’ basketball team is rock solid this season. The Lady Falcons have bolstered their record to 16-2 after winning a 56-36 Catholic League A-B semifinal game against Ann Arbor Gabriel Richard last Wednesday.
DC head coach Mary Laney is all smiles and has sent her cage squad after the Catholic League title in the finals held at University of Detroit-Mercy’s Calihan Hall on Feb. 19. They will be playing Farmington Hills Mercy in a 3 p.m. start.
It looks as though the Dearborn parochial school has a definite edge and has a very good chance of coming away with their first Detroit Catholic League title in quite some time. Divine Child has a strong winning combination between the coach and players, making them a hard team to beat. My case in point starts with Laney’s vision: “Let’s go all the way and take the championship.”
Cara Miller is one of the key players for DC and often scores in double figures and has captured the technique of making rebound-after-rebound. Another contributing player is Nicole Urbanick, who was leading scorer against Gabriel Richard.
The Lady Falcons have everthing they need to have an exceptional season, including the defense of their Class B state title they won last year. Skill, talent, determination and a relentless defense are some of the things that make the Lady Falcons so tough on the hardwoods this winter.
With “March Madness” right around the corner, look for the girls from the Silverly Lane gymnasium to continue their winning ways.
