Coach Nikki Santiago looked at the trip to Orlando as not only a chance for the team to go up against high-level competition, but a team bonding experience.
According to the ESPN Wide World of Sports website, the KSA Classic Basketball Tournament gives athletes the opportunity for high-level competition at a national tournament in a world class facility.
The Lady Bridgers took on a team from Canada, Lambton Kent winning 69 to 11.
"While we took a quick lead against a team that was obviously down, it give us a chance to rotate the girls and play everyone," said Coach Nikki Santiago. "We have had multiple kids with double figures."
The next game was against Bolles, a team from Florida, that the Lady Bridgers won.
Santiago said, "As a coaching staff, we were able to exploit their team's weaknesses and capitalize in the second half and pulled out another Ambridge victory 69 - 42."
The Lady Bridgers ended the tournament in second place falling 52-57 to Tennessee.
"The Ambridge girls basketball team, family and friends would like to thank the entire community for their unyielding support and encouragement," Santiago said.
"Without you this trip would not be possible. Thank you to everyone for helping us to fundraise to reach our goal. It has truly been a magical experience."
