STM girls basketball team celebrates with young fans

Two weeks ago the Saint Thomas More Cavaliers picked up their fifth straight Class A girls basketball State Championship, and to celebrate the achievement they held an assembly for the youngest Cavaliers.

Saint Elizabeth Seton students hosted some of the members of that state championship team, the players handed out candy and toy basketballs to the students, talked to them about making sure they work hard in the classroom as well as in their extracurricular activities, and fielded questions from the students.

The excitement from those at Seton to see their local heroes was evident and was a good reminder for the girls on the team as to how much they're admired by the younger generation.

Brandon Kandolin says,' I think it was an eye opener to let them know that they are in that position. I think it's important to kids like that understand that if you are only seen and not heard how much of an impact you can be.'

Klaire Kirsch says, 'Before we even walked in they were so loud and so excited, coming in we knew it was going to be fun and right off the bat we were able to feed off their energy and be excited that we were out here.'

The STM girls have won 6 of the past 7 Class A state championships.
