23 Nov 2009 (U11 Girls) AAU-Division I National Champions
BACK-TO-BACK AAU NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS- U11 Girls Gold Team Wins Title Game 46 – 42!
Congratulations to the Fairfax Stars U11 Girls Gold team as they defeated the Dayton Lady Hoopstars on Wednesday afternoon, July 1st, 46 – 42, to win the 2009 11 & Under Girls AAU Division I National Championship! Congratulations to the players and coaches on an outstanding tournament!
The 2009 title game was nip and tuck the whole way. The two teams had just played each other recently in the Fairfax Stars Summer Spectacular tournament. Trailing 38 – 31 late in the second half, the Stars turned up the heat and closed the game with a 15 – 4 run to claim the 2009 championship.
The Stars won the 10 & Under Girls AAU National Championship last year and entered this year as the #1 seed. It is rare indeed for any team to win a single AAU National Championship, but to win back-to-back just does not happen very often. In fact, this Fairfax Stars team becomes only the 2nd Potomac Valley team to EVER claim back-to-back Division I AAU National Championships.
Congratulations to all of the players and coaches…and thank you to the parents, families, friends, and fans of these talented student-athletes for your continuing support and enthusiasm.
