On our way to Laurel from Wisner, we took the shortest route through Wayne. On Friday night, Wayne was hit by a tornado. Outside of town to the south and the east side of town were hit pretty hard by the tornado. Luckily, no one died because of the tornado. There were homes lost, some businesses completely destroyed and the airport is totally gone.
The 5th Grade girls were scheduled to play two games in pool play and then a tournament coming out of pool play. There were 14 teams in this tournament. The first game they won in two sets and then second game was a win by forfeit over a Wayne team that did not show. The tournament was single elimination so you must win to keep playing.
After playing two or three tournament games, our girls were in the finals against a team from Hartington. Our girls won the first set and then lost the next two sets. Hartington was the only team all day to take our girls to three sets. It was a long day, but they were so excited when Coach Kelli presented them with their 2nd Place medals.
We were so proud of these girls on their 2nd Place finish.
We are back in the gym this week for more games. Cara played Monday night against Battle Creek with another loss in three very close sets. They won the first set again. On Thursday, we are in Madison for a junior high game. And then on Saturday, Cara has a game in Pierce and Erica plays in another tournament in Pender. Bleacher seats are definitely in our future as parents!
