ROCKFORD (WREX) — The Boylan girls basketball team got a slam dunk off the court Thursday.

The team presented a check for $16,138 to Corpus Christi Monastery of the Poor Clares. The team took in donations and gave bracelets to donors. This is the first year the team has done this.

"We spend a lot of time knowing about them, " said Boylan guard Mia Dally. "So being able to do what they do for us is really special."

Some of the money will go toward repairing the building's elevator.
