We had an amazing roster this year complete with a five foot nine center. …show more content…
We were all down and seemed depressed. But our coach gave us a great speech telling us not to be down but to practice hard and win the next game. So we practiced and practiced and when game two finally came around we were ready and beat the other team sixty-one to fifty-seven, Although it was close it was a win none the less.

I remember seeing my mom in the cut, her nodding her head saying you got this so i was very confident. As the game went down to the final 3 seconds it was tied, they had the ball.

    This did not benefit our playing style, we were a team that was at the top of our class in passing and spacing.
