Basketball Tournament!

Basketball season is officially over!! I’m so sad happy!!! As some of you are aware, I am the assistant coach for my daughter’s middle school. Our school does not employee coaches for any sports. All of the coaches are volunteers. Our school relies a great deal on its parents/staff. At the beginning of the season we had a coach, but no assistant coach. I felt so bad for our coach that I decided to become the assistant coach. Now I work full time and our team practiced everyday at 4:00pm. Needless to say, I had to rearrange my work schedule to help out. I work for a great company that had no problem with me doing this. Boy, was I lucky?? Now let me just say I’ve never played basketball, so it was quit the challenge for me. I would go on line just to learn what all the lines on the court were. Thank goodness I’m a pretty fast learner!!!

Now let me get to my point here! Our team had a great season considering this was the first year our school had a middle school basketball team. We placed 2nd in the conference. Yippee!! Well this week was tournament week, and we played the championship game Thursday!!! The team we played Thursday did not lose one game this season…. Needless to say, we came in 2nd place.  Our girls played their hearts out, and when the game was over you would have thought we came in first place. Each girl had a great attitude. I’m so very proud of our girls. Just wait until next year!!!

Trying to get the girls excited....

Getting ready for the game!!!  We played this team Tuesday!

Next Wednesday we are having a fundraiser. The fundraiser will be the girls middle school b-ball team against the boys middle school b-ball team, then the girls and boys b-ball teams against the coaches/staff.  That means I have to play, and did I mention I’ve never played basketball? It should be fun…. Wish me luck!
