Charlotte played Upward for the first time this year. She was hesitant at first (like always), but rocked it by the end. Macie and Riley played Upward and D-League. Macie's D-League team only lost one game and won the the championship for the 2nd-3rd grade division. Riley's 4th and 5th grade team, coached by Todd, never won a game. Yikes! I can't blame the coaches or the players in this situation! It was a rough year, but Riley kept a positive attitude and showed real character by not giving up.
The last two games of Upward Macie had to play injured. She got her finger shut in the hinge of a door at church. She had so much blood and swelling under her nail that we had to go to the doctor to get it drained. Then we had to do it a lot at home. Eww. Gross.
Macie improved so much this year. She went from playing the 'bear hug' defense to playing in stance and sliding her feet. Her shot has perfect form and almost always goes in...she just needs to work on getting herself open.
