For the first time in CHAH history, the Girl’s Basketball Team, the CHAH Lady Phoenix, made the PSAL Playoffs! Coaches Bowen and Sullivan credit this program milestone to the hard work and dedication of the players, both on and off the court. Though they were bumped out of the playoffs in the first round, the girls had a fantastic season. They celebrated at Barclays Center, home of the New York Nets, for one final celebratory game.
