This past weekend was one of the rare opportunities for a Victory Scholars reunion. Despite not being a full reunion, it is always great to see some of the other Scholars that are located throughout the country. The venue was Cork. The occasion was the national cup semifinals. There were six scholars in total that made the weekend trip to Cork. Marritta playing for the Mystics, Jazmen and Katie with Wildcats, and Emily and Meghan playing for the Meteors all earned a chance to play for a spot in the cup finals. And I got to spectate all of this. In packed gyms, I got to see all three games. For some of the scholars I was watching them play for the first time. It was great to all my friends in action and even better to spend some time with all of them before, during, and after the games. Congrats to all the Scholars who made it that far (and Marritta who won!) I can’t wait for the next scholar reunion.
