One of the teams I was working with earlier this year was the HORSHOLM 79's women basketball team.
This past weekend (April 24, 2010) they won the "Danish Dameligaen" Championship, which is the highest division of female basketball in Denmark.
I know it is not always a smooth ride to the top and this team certainly had it up and downs with players coming, then leaving, then not be able to play due to various reasons but in the end they pulled it off.
A couple of the Horsholm players also cleaned up on the individual awards from Eurobasket.com.
