Francesca Belibi, a 15-year old, 6-Foot- 1 sophomore, made history when she stole a pass at mid court and made an impressive one-handed dunk during a high school game. Her dunk was the first one in the history of Colorado female high school basketball.
“I don’t know, I just did it,” the 15-year-old told the Aurora Sentinel after the game. “I didn’t realize it went in until I heard the crowd and heard the snap (of the rim). Then I definitely heard my teammates. I think the crowd definitely understands the importance behind it — the first girl to dunk — but it was completely unexpected. Girls don’t dunk.”
