All-stars capture national title

Redwood Undisputed, an all-star basketball team of fourth-grade girls representing the Redwood chapter of the Silicon Valley Section for National Junior Basketball, captured the national championship title in a 29 to 15 victory over undefeated Newport Mesa on April 7 in Garden Grove.

The girls won the title after having played for only three weeks under Coach Philip Trinidad. The all-star team was formed by the top 10 players in the division from Menlo Park, Atherton, Redwood City, Emerald Hills and San Carlos.

"It is really inspiring to see a team come together and all play hard for one another, especially at such a young age," says Coach Trinidad. John Paye and Rodney Jackson are assistant coaches for Redwood Undisputed.

Members of the team are Georgia Paye, Natalia Hotovec, Caitlin Dulsky, Porsche Trinidad, Danielle McNair, Jacqueline Kurland, Sonia Goyle, Tejal Gupta, Alexis Jackson and Nikki Yeh.

Danielle McNair, proudly, our grand daughter, is part of the Redwood AllStats basketball team winning the National Title basketball competition. Any grandparent knows how exciting it is to see their grandchild succeed in a team effort to become the "Champs".

Danielle, you are "our" champ. Congratulations.
