Congratulations to the Columbia Ravens 14AAU GIRLS.

At the AAU 14U National Championships in Salem, VA, the Ravens 14U National Team became the 11th ranked team in the Nation. The tournament started out with the Ravens defeating the 5th seeded team going into the Tournament, the Tennessee Hustle, 54-44. The Ravens completed pool play in second place, beating the Acadiana Stars of Louisiana (56-53) and losing to a strong Boo Williams out of Hampton, VA (70-62). This showing earned them a berth in the Championship bracket. In bracket play, the Ravens opened up with the eventual National Champions, the Indy Gym Rats. After keeping a close game, down only by 8 at the half, the Gym Rats went on to win, 72-52. The Ravens next defeated the Wisconsin Prestige 74-63. The Ravens run in the tournament ended with a loss to the Orlando Comets, 45-44. We are extremely proud of how well the girls competed against the best national competition AAU had to offer.

In the 2009 season, competing with 8 new players and playing a 15 and 16U schedule, the team finished the season with a record of 36 -12. In addition to finishing ranked nationally, the Ravens also captured the bronze medal in Maryland state AAU competition, finished 2nd in the Hershey Showcase, and finished first in the Flames March Madness 15U and the Charm City Showdown 15U events.

Many thanks to the Coaches Charles Jackson, Bianca Francoeur, and Newt Davis. And thanks to the families who traveled, cheered and generally had a good time. But most important, thanks to the girls for all of the thrills, fun and craziness they provided. Thanks to Michaela Battle, Brittany Butler, Mila Clark , Brittney Davis, Meagan Fowler, Jasmine Hill, Alauna Jackson, Mary Kittleman, Jordan Labbe, Tiffany Padgett, and Knowlej Randall-Thomas.

The Columbia Ravens 9U Girls went 5-0 this week in league and tournament play.

The young Ravens defeated Queens Express of New York in the Championship game 21-6. Earlier in the tournament the Ravens beat Matrix of Virginia (27-4) and another Queens Express team (30-20). Selina Robinson-Clipper lead the way in the semi final game with a career high 13 points. In Sunday's Championship Game Jessica Foster and Courtney Furr had 9 and 10 points respectively to help the Ravens roll past the Express. The real story however was the stellar defense played by Emma Shettig, Ava Dennis and Bobbie Haney who swarmed the ball the entire game. Kelly Simons and Kelsey Ellis cleaned the boards to help get the fast breaking Ravens easy baskets with great outlet passing. The Ravens have another full calendar of games this week as they prepare for the Mid Atlantic Nationals held in Richmond, VA.
