Yesterday Star had the second basketball game of the season. She is the tallest girl on the team by far. She is also the tallest of the two teams they have played so far.
As the tallest girl she is indispensable and her long arms block shots and passes like nobody's business. It is great to see her get aggressive out there (makes her Prop father proud).
Last year she was the first girl ever from her school to foul out. The coaches are fine with that. They say, "they give you the fouls, use them."
She is even better this year, she had no fouls in the first game and only two yesterday.
Enough of roughhousing, what was the score? Well, the intensity level was unbelievable from these girls. They usually are SO NICE that they almost seem apologetic when they win, like they offended the other team. But, yesterday they went out there and took the game.
They kept the other team from scoring a single basket through most of the first two quarters. At half time the other team had only made one 3 point basket, the score was 15 to 3. We parents were so excited that I took a photo of the scoreboard (it didn't turn out).
We ended the game with our Star getting 2 points, a bunch of blocks and a few rebounds.
The final score was 24-13! Hooray!!
