SIDNEY — City of Sidney Mayor Mike Barhorst visited Sidney High School on Tuesday to proclaim the day as Sidney High School Girls Basketball Team Day.
The team has had an exceptional year, as Mayor Barhorst noted in the proclamation, finishing their regular season with a 22-0 record, and winning their second consecutive Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division championship.
“The 2016 Sidney High School girls basketball team has now won 40 consecutive games and is only the second girls team in school history to accomplish this feat,” said Barhorst. “Whereas, the team represented their school and entire community with class and dignity; and now, therefore, I, Mike Barhorst, Mayor of the City of Sidney, Ohio, in recognition of the 2016 Sidney High School girls basketball team’s remarkable abilities and championship attitudes do hereby proclaim Tuesday, February 16, 2016, as Sidney High School Girls Basketball Team Day.”
The team was also recognized before the Sidney High School boys varsity game last Friday for their efforts and abilities on and off the court. Among the members of the team is Sidney High School’s all-time leading scorer, senior Sylvia Hudson.
The team has a 3.75 cumulative team grade point average, with each player making the first semester honor roll. Seniors Kaitlyn Davis and Adrianne Miller have career GPAs over 4.0.
Also among the players on the team are the senior class president, vice president, and treasurer, as well as the student government president, exemplifying leadership both on the court and off.
The girls continues in tournament action tonight at Troy High School against Piqua at 6 p.m.
