Last Thursday the kids did not have school because the Norfolk Catholic Lady Knights basketball team had qualified for the state basketball tournament. Keith took a partial day of vacation and we headed to Lincoln to watch the girls play basketball against Kearney Catholic.
Norfolk Catholic's record going into the state tournament was 15-9 and we were the #7 seed in the tournament. Only eight teams qualify for state and we played the #2 seed in the first round.
Kearney Catholic was a very tall team with about three girls being over 6 feet tall. We played a tough game that came down to the very end. Our girls lost 39-31, but they never gave up and not a lot of shots were falling.
The 6th graders all sat in the top row to watch the game. It was all boys until Cara decided to join them and she took along Erica for support.
We cheered and cheered, but it wasn't enough. On a good note though, my alma mater of Pierce High School did win the Class C-1 Girls State Basketball Title for the first time ever in the history of the school. We are proud of their excellent play at the state tourney!
