Congratulations to the ICJA JV Lady Aces on winning the fourth consecutive Chicago Prep Conference Title. The girls entered the Conference Tournament as the number two seed. Monday night, the girls played against CTK and took an early lead and then never let up. The Aces cruised to a 35-16 victory and were headed to clinch the fourth consecutive title, the third year under Coach Appel.
Tuesday night, the JV Lady Aces played against Hope Academy, the number one seed. The Aces lost to Hope earlier in the year and were looking forward to the rematch that would untimely decide the Conference Championship.
The referees called a very tight game on both sides, with 43 fouls called between both teams. The JV Lady Aces never lost their composure, and the team kept on working to build the lead. It was a very close game at half time, and then the Aces came out determined to finish off the game on a strong note. The team finished out the fourth quarter with a final score of 48-34!
The JV Lady Aces finished their season with a very impressive record of 19-2!
