SENATE RESOLUTION


     MADAM PRESIDENT:

    I offer the following resolution and move its adoption:

     A SENATE RESOLUTION congratulating the Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School Girls Basketball Team on its victory in the 2007 IHSAA Class 3A basketball championship.

    Whereas, the Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School Girls Basketball Team concluded their regular season and sectional schedules with a record of nineteen wins and six losses to advance into the Mount Vernon (Fortville) Regional. The Braves came on strong in post season competition to defeat Whiteland and Connersville;

    Whereas, as a result of these victories, the Brebeuf Jesuit Braves won the right to compete in the Jeffersonville Semi- State competition. The Braves defeated Evansville Bosse by a score of 55-53 to earn the opportunity to play for the Class 3A Championship Title;

    Whereas, in the championship game, the Braves were patient on offense as the six-foot-six Ta'Shia Phillips worked under the basket. The Wawasee Warriors labored to keep the ball away from Phillips. However, when she got the ball the Warriors found her nearly unstoppable;


    Whereas, when the Warriors resorted to double-teaming Phillips in the second half, reserve forward Ivie Obeime stepped up and provided a fourth-quarter boost that lifted her team to a 51-43 victory; and

    Whereas, this victory was the result of a great team effort and marked the second IHSAA Class 3A State Championship in only four years for the Brebeuf Jesuit Braves and Head Coach Kendall Kreinhagen. We congratulate the Braves for winning the Class 3A State Championship and wish them continued success in the future: Therefore,

Be it resolved by the Senate of the

General Assembly of the State of Indiana:

                

    SECTION 1. That the Indiana State Senate honors the Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School Girls Basketball Team for winning the 2007 IHSAA Class 3A State Championship.
    SECTION 2. The Secretary of the Senate is hereby directed to transmit a copy of this Resolution to President Matthew Hayes, Coach Kendall Kreinhagen and each member of the championship team.
