GUTS AND GLORY. Jim and I had our first U16 Elks game on Saturday. It was the most intense game I have been apart of in a while. It reminded me why I love the game, the people, the passion, the life. We went into overtime and got the W. We were a lot smaller than the other team but it didn’t stop our girls. They dug in and showed everyone in the gym that they are some tough chicks! These girls are always at practice on Friday night ready to work and all there hard work paid off on Saturday. The game also exposed the meaning of a real team, everyone contributed to the victory, whether they were on the court in the last minutes or cheering their hearts out on the bench. My college coach always told us that “great teams are made up of great benches”- and she could not have been more right on Saturday afternoon. I am so proud of our girls for having the confidence and mental toughness to start off the season with such a memorable win. Lets keep it going ladies.
