Monarchs Take Home The Title

nationals

In their inagural season, the Atlanta Monarchs become the first professional women's basketball team to bring a National Title to the city of Atlanta!

Coached by former Dream Coach, Marynell Meadors, the 15-1 Monarchs dominated in the 1st and 2nd round of the National Tournament, then secured the title in their inaugural season by knocking of 2x previous Champs, the STL Surge.

The Monarchs players, who have been referred to as high quality players on par with the WNBA, included former Dream players Rachel Hollivay and Meighan Simmons; Atlanta Native and WNBA draftee, Sydney Wallace; as well as veteran PG, former Indiana Fever and local coach, trainer, and mentor, LaToya Bond.

Suffering only one loss during the regular season to an equally stacked STL Surge, the back and forth battle for the title featured great basketball and was nothing less than, exciting, inspiring, and highly competitive.

The Monarchs sealed the deal in just the last 6 seconds of the game.  After a turnover by the Monarchs, the Surge, down by one (80-79) gained possession on their end of the court.  The Monarchs locked down on defense as the Surge inbounded the ball. Attempting to take their last shot for the win, the Surge appeared to have an open shot.  The Surge's player took the shot, but Monarchs' 6'5 Rachel Hollivay quickly snatched the ball out of the air and held on, securing the win and the WBCBL National Title.

Growing the Game

Members of the Atlanta Monarchs had another awesome day in the community with these awesome young ladies of the ASGR Top 10 All-American Camp.  These young ladies aspire to play at the highest level and the Monarchs assisted in coaching and sharing their knowledge with these young ladies for the 2 day camp.  It's always a blessing to be an inspiration to our youth who look to follow in behind the footsteps of these amazing women.  The Monarchs were grateful for this opportunity to not only give back to the youth, but also to grow the game of basketball.

Monarchs Become Atlantic Region Champs

regionals

The Atlanta Monarchs conquered the Atlantic Regional Championship with an 86-63 win over the Music City Icons.  What appeared to be a close game in the first half with the Monarchs leading by only 10 at the half, turned into a nightmare for the Icons.

The Monarchs came out full force the second half, only allowing the Icons to score 6 points in the 3rd quarter while the Monarchs tallied 24 points.  The Monarchs kept their foot on the gas and never looked back as they clinched their first Atlantic Region Championship in their inaugural season.

Rachel Hollivay Joins Monarchs

Rachel Hollivay, former Atlanta Dream 6'5 Center commits to the Atlanta Monarchs for the 2018 season! Rachel, is a powerhouse Rutgers Women's Basketball standout where she is an all-time leader in blocked shots with 322 career rejections and is the only Scarlet Knight in women's basketball history with over 300 career blocks and multiple seasons with over 100 rejections.

Career Day

PBR had an awesome day with Shiloh Elementary School 3rd graders for career day.  Members of the Atlanta Monarchs spent the morning using fundamental basketball to teach the kids about teamwork, communication, and leadership.  The kids also had a chance to hear, first hand, what it's like to be a professional athlete and the hard work, dedication, and other qualities needed to be successful in life.

Bicycle Rodeo

Playmakers Basketball Royalties and the Atlanta Monarachs were proud to team up with the Fulton County Sheriff's Office for the 2018 Bicycle Rodeo.  This was an amazing event as the Monarchs helped give out bicycles and safety gear to hundreds of youth in the community. Over 200 bikes were donated and kids learned about bicycle safety and rules of the road.  The kids also had the opportunity to ride their bikes in the street with the awesome men and women of Atlanta's Law Enforcement agencies.
