Default Just Wanna Brag a Bit

Just a proud Papa post:

This is my oldest daughters last year of HS basketball, as she
graduates and heads off to Fairfield U. in the fall. This is a rebuilding
year for the team. New coach, etc., and they've been struggling. She's
having a pretty good year overall, averaging about 12 pts. and rebounds
per game. Tonight was Senior night and they played their crosstown rivals.
The team won and she lit 'em up for 29 points, going 13/15 from the charity
stripe, and ruling the boards!!!Probably her best game ever.

But here's what really made me beam. The father of one of the sophmores,
who's having a tough season, came up to me to tell me that the support and encouragement his daughter gets from mine has been sustaining through her
struggle. And that my kid has been the only one on the team to take the time
to talk to her about it. And what a great example she is to his daughter, and
on and on.

She must get it from her Mom.

That's just great stuff. Nice job raising a winner cjsweeney!

Last year my oldest son played up a few games for my town's Pony-level baseball team. He was the youngest one on the team, and intimidated by the fast pitching, etc. There was this one older boy who was the first one up on the dugout to slap his hand and say, "no worries", to be there and tell him how to adjust to this pitcher or that pitcher, and also to congratulate him when he got his hits. I told that boy's father the same thing that was spoken to you about your daughter, so I can relate. It's awesome to see the next generation raised right.

Rock and Roll

Probably just intramural. But you never can tell with her.
She may decide to take a run at it.

After coaching H.S. football for over 20 years that's always nice to hear! It shows that your daughter is a team player and for her coach she's probably a delite to have on the team! Merrimac students must go to a regional school,is it Pentucket or Triton?

Thanks to all for the kind words.

I'm beginning to think I'm gonna miss this kid when she
goes off to school.
