Samantha’s basketball season has also come and gone…and we built a lot of character this season! ha! Her team only won 2 games and finished 13th out of 13 teams. But, they hustled, learned a few things, and had some good fun. That’s what its all about!
One of the girls that was was supposed to be on her team was never able to play due to an injured foot so they only had 6 players all season but those 6 gave it their all! 2nd grade basketball is funny because the defenders can’t come out of the box – so the only play is to dribble to the side, play defense on offense to block the defenders, and shoot from the side of the goal. Samantha got pretty good at that shot! She played with a ton of hustle and grit and I got lots of pics of her jumping up in the air to make that shot!! I love to watch that blonde ponytail swing!
I was so proud of how hard she played every game. She showed up and gave it her all, that’s for sure. She’s a good little ball handler and I think there might be some more basketball in her future.
I sure do love to watch her play whatever sport she’s playing – and I know GJ does too!
Go Shooting Stars!!
