"We could actually win this!" (SOL19 #29)
“We could actually win this!” A smile crept across her face as she intently looked at the scoreboard. "We sure can!" I replied, just as hopeful.
My mind flashed back to just a couple months ago when we first began practicing. Dribbling was tough, and we were just learning how to pass.
“This is too hard! I can’t shoot!”
I heard it all.
Yesterday while watching the Lady Tigers take on the other district teams in the tournament was a moment of immense pride for me. It was great to see how much our girls have grown and have become a team. They looked for the open girl, made the pass, and girls who had not scored a basket all season, made their first two pointer. Although we didn’t win, I could not be more proud of their accomplishments this season. They never gave up, learned about teamwork, and cheered each other on.
I also am looking forward to co-coaching again next year.
