Lakeland PAL in partnership with Lakeland Simpson Park brought together girls from the local AAU league to form a girls PAL basketball league, which is the direction we are headed in for FY 2014. PAL took 14 & Under and 12 & Under all girls teams to compete in the Florida State PAL Youth Basketball Tournament in April 2013. Other PAL organizations competing were Lake Wales, Melbourne, New Smyrna Beach, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and many others. Our girls played hard games of basketball and after playing with no breaks Friday and Saturday, the 12 & Under Team walked away with a Bronze medal against Melbourne PAL. We would like to give accolades to both teams for playing so earnestly.
Congratulations to Coach Madericka Williams and the Lady Canes 12 & Under team!! We also thank Coach Latisha Jones and the 14 & Under team for their hard work persistence.
