An article from The Ajax News Advertiser…
DURHAM — The Durham City Chameleons major atom girls’ basketball team finished off their 2017-18 season in exciting fashion by capturing the Division 1 Ontario Cup championship.
The team bounced back from losing a close game in the championship last season. The group of Grade 6 students worked extremely hard in the off-season and vowed to get back to the championship again, and were completely focused all season long.
The Chameleons fought their way to the championship game with solid wins of 47-31 over Sudbury, 45-19 over Tecumseh and 43-32 over Hamilton Transway, setting up a rematch of last year’s championship game against Dundas Dynamo.
With the title on the line, the Chameleons showed no nerves and came up with a 39-30 victory to claim the No. 1 spot in Ontario.
Coach Dennis Thomas said all the girls contributed and deserved the triumph, after working hard all season and never giving up the dream of being the best in Ontario. The core of the team has been playing together for three years.
Team members are Olamide Akingbade, Jelissia Downey, Keyara Collwell-Earle, Jayda Jones, Daniela Lawrence, Monique Monplaisir, Kamara Morgan, Rashia Powell, A’mya Rawlins-Thomas, Alexia Verchies and Taylor Williams. Other staff includes assistant coach George Verchies and administrators Dawn Brown and Andrea Jones.
The team will be formally recognized by the Ajax and Whitby town council in the next few months. Players hail from Ajax, Pickering, Whitby and Oshawa.
