2nd Place in Crofton!

Saturday morning the girls and I were out of the house early to get to Crofton by 8:30 a.m. for a basketball tournament.  The 4th Grade girls played a 9 o'clock game against the host team, Crofton.  Crofton is known around the state as a power house in girls basketball earning many trips to state and also many state championships.  But, anything is possible and the Norfolk Catholic girls won the first game 20-2.
After the first game, we got out of the gym and went over to Franny and Sharlene's house to relax until the next game.  Grandpa and Grandma Leader came over from Bloomfield to watch.  Ashlin had a few extra fans in the stands with Grandpa, Grandma, Aunt Sharlene, Cara, Erica and me.
 In the second game, it was Norfolk Catholic against Wynot.  Wynot is a small town in Northeast Nebraska that also has a good basketball program.  Again the Norfolk Catholic girls were victorious with a 16-7 win.  This win put them in the championship game against Pierce.
Our girls had played Pierce two weeks earlier in the Stanton Tournament and lost to them 0-22.  But, this week they played harder and tougher.  They ended up losing 7-18.  It was a much closer and competitive game than the first meeting.  I'm sure we will see them at another tournament this season.
So proud of these girls!!!  They have improved so much since their first tournament.  Ashlin scored two points in each game!  It was a great day in the gym!
Take care,
