The Maharishi School girls basketball team enjoyed their best season ever this year, capping a 17-6 season with their first Class 1A district championship.

Another high point of the season was their first-ever defeat of the Van Buren Warriorettes varsity girls team on Van Buren's home court. Van Buren was ranked #15 in the state at the time with a record of 19-1. It was the Warriorettes' only loss in conference play.

The team's season may have been even more successful if two of its star players, Amellia Schuldt and Sofia Iwobi, hadn't had to sit out the first half of the season with injuries.

After their district championship, the team advanced to the regional semifinal, where they lost to 13th-ranked Fort Madison Aquinas.

Senior Taylor Ross, the team's top scorer this year, was named a first-team all-conference selection. Ms. Ross will play for the women's basketball team at Carleton College in Minnesota.

Named to the second team were senior Anna Tarnoff and sophomore Sofia Iwobi. Honorable mention went to senior Grace Boyle and sophomore Ami Freeberg.

Other team members included seniors Alexandria Kurzen and Ms. Schuldt; juniors Divindy Grant and Aysha Wofford; and freshman DeeDee Narducci.

The girls are coached by Brendan Higgins and assistant coach Ron Perry.

The boys team got off to a slow start this year, with a 4-9 record, but then had an impressive streak, winning eight out of nine games and defeating two of the top teams in the conference, Waco and Van Buren.

Junior John Armstrong was honored by being named a first-team all-conference selection. Senior Noah Loin and freshman Woody Orne received honorable mention.
