The last 5th Grade basketball tournament was in West Point. The first game the girls played a good team from Pender and lost. This put us in the losers bracket with a game on Saturday at 3:30.
Next up was a team from West Point Guardian Angel. We won. The girls played more aggressive and with lots of energy. Erica had a good game defensively and even scored two points.
This was Erica's first season to play basketball and she has come so far. She has learned to play aggressive, to box out, to guard with hands up, to shuffle her feet and she has gained so much confidence while having fun with her friends.
This little boy was such a good boy in West Point. After his disappointing morning in Wayne at wrestling, he sat at the top of the bleachers by himself with his Leapster and played games while eating candy. He didn't bother anyone and no one bothered him.
Lastly, the girls played the other team from West Point Guardian Angel and lost in a very physical game. The girls have a team huddle after every game and listen to the coach. The huddle is ended with a "Hail Mary" as is tradition at Norfolk Catholic.
They were all smiles at the end of the day. This was the last tournament and it was season of learning and growth. This group of girls has great potential!
As parents, we are so proud of these girls and especially Erica!
