Women’s Basketball Players Sporting a New Piece of Jewelry

Members of O’Dowd’s women’s basketball team are sporting a new piece of jewelry these days – state championship rings. For some, it’s the second such ring in their jewelry box.

Team members were presented the rings during a ring blessing ceremony held in the Chapel on Sept. 9, with O’Dowd Chaplain Fr. Gerald Pedrera officiating.

The women’s team captured the program’s second consecutive state title in March, defeating Windward-Los Angeles, 65-50, to capture the first CIF Open Division state championship. In 2012, the Dragons were the Division III state champion.

First Dragon Ever Selected to Participate

LeBron James was one. Candace Parker was one. And now Oderah Chidom ’13 is one.

It was announced on ESPNU on Feb. 14 that Chidom has been selected to participate in the McDonald’s All American Games, featuring the best high school boys and girls basketball players in the country. The games are set for Wednesday, April 3, at Chicago’s United Center. The girl’s game begins at 6 p.m. (central time), while the boys tip off at 8:30 p.m. (central time).

Chidom is the first Dragon – male or female – to have been selected as a McDonald’s All American. More than 800 players from 39 states and the District of Columbia were nominated for the 2013 McDonald’s All American Games.

“I feel extremely honored. To be the first player to represent O’Dowd’s nationally known high school athletic program is amazing,” Chidom said.
