What better way to spend a sunday afternoon then to enjoy a game of basketball. We took a trip to Dublin for a “friendly match” against the Kubs. It was great to see some of the kids we worked with a couple weeks ago at the camp in Dublin. But after our intital greetings it was time to play.
The girls got out to a slow start, and with it being my first time coaching the team I was nervous about not only losing but getting blown out. We were down by as many as 18 points early in the game. I constantly reminded the girls that it’s a long game, don’t give up! The U14 Junior Elks never gave up! The second half they played with so much energy! Sending the game into overtime and defeating the Kubs U14 51-46! I was so proud of the girls and to see the smiles on their faces was priceless. Who wouldn’t smile after a great win like that and our competition from the Kubs was fantastic. I hope they are still smiling at our next training session, as we have more work to do! We will get there…Road to #VICTORY
