Today Kelsey and I met with our community partners for the Trinity outreach programs and discussed the goals they had for us this year. We will be working with a group of kids from an intercity school in Dublin. They told us that the kids loved the victory scholars from last year and were so disappointed when they left. Sounds like we have some big shoes to fill! Very excited to start working with and getting to know this class!
As for a basketball update, this past weekend I played in the Pat Clarke Basketball Tournament with my Meteors team! It started up the season in full force as we had four games in two days! There were about six Victory Scholars there as well as Gareth and Deirdre, so it was amazing getting to catch up with them and hear about their experiences so far. My team ended up losing by two points in the championship game! I was so proud of our team. By the final game, we were all exhausted, but we stayed mentally strong, positive and played together the whole time. It’s great to see the progress we have made within the past month!
