Cara's basketball season was finally over a couple weeks ago. It was the longest sport season! She has been practicing basketball since October. First, she played 7th Grade junior high basketball and then she moved right into club basketball at school.
As parents, we made her finish the season and stick it out because once you start something you finish it. It was a long season and she was so ready for it to be over.
The last tournament was at our school. Emma #36 and Cara both did not want to even go to the tournament that day, but as parents we made them go. When they finally got to go in, as a parent I was shocked and had my camera ready for a few last photos of the season.
After not being able to play last year because of her wrist being broken, this season she started slow. It took her awhile to get aggressive and learn and practice fundamentals. She improved throughout the season.
She has definitely learned to play better defense and to use her long arms and legs.
Cara got a rebound in this photo and she is holding on to the ball protecting it from the other team.
The #50 on the Eagles team is Lexi. Cara and Lexi used to be in dance together for years. To have them defending each other, was a friendship renewed on the court.
Cara has already moved on to volleyball. She played four games last Sunday in Columbus. The 7th Grade girls won 4 sets and lost 4 sets. Mid-March she will start going to track practice. She is already planning sports camps for the summer.
