For the first time since the 1979 season, the St. Joseph High School girls basketball team is on top of the world, as they upended a tough Cromwell team 50-44 Saturday afternoon during the CIAC class M finals at the Mohegan Sun Arena.
"I am so proud of my kids right now because we knew they would be coming back at us," St. Joseph head coach Chris Lindwall said. "They are a great team, they are well-coached and have some excellent players. At the end we were kind of trying to survive and I said to them to stop, play our game and do what we have been doing. We needed to call those timeouts and make that happen. We executed everything that we needed to do in the last two minutes."
