Niskayuna Girls Travel Basketball Junior B League Champions

Niskayuna players have worked diligently to build trust and respect with one another. Their hard work helped them become a complete team with the passing of each practice, and each game in which they were involved. This young team of talent continued to build on early season successes and developed the sheer confidence necessary to overcome challenges. This team discovered a sense of unity needed to become a formidable opponent through the season. The championship was a genuine source of pride that made every player, coach and parent extremely proud of his or her accomplishments.

At the beginning of the month, the Niskayuna Girls Travel Basketball Junior B team had achieved greatly and marked the starting point of an excellent season of basketball.

The 2014-15 season marked victories, memories, and great momentum, which continued to pile up throughout the course of the season. The team became the best squad in the AAU and compiled a 15-0 record that would launch them into the postseason for the Capital District Girls Basketball League. The tournament took place in early March and hosted the top teams in the league.

StephenSouky takes great pride in the continual progression made by his team. He feels their camaraderie; respect and compassion helped develop them into a truly dominant unit. The team became one breathing force and in doing so they truly relied on teamwork, practice, and skills and faced each new challenge relatively unscathed and unafraid of failure. Souky is the President of the team and the AAU. He has volunteered his spare time as a coach and helped develop a winning team.
