What a day of ups and downs for the team. Game 3 of the tournament was a close one all the way and in the last two minutes Jolie threw a 3 pointer that landed and we all went nuts. It was the game winning shot and there were lots of happy tears for her and the team that persevered to win. Proud of them!
Our final game was a tough one and we lost 20-4. The girls were devastated and lots of tears. They left it all on the court and hopefully took in how competitive these tournaments can be. Us parents had to pep talk them and convince them we did out best and it was time to have fun. It is not easy to rally tired, emotional pre-teens. Very proud of Micky...how she played and no tears. I always say "no crying on the court" and she earned the Team Mascot for the game.
Ramona Rampage took 4th place out if 5 teams! Not bad for our first tournament.
Proud of all these girls and proud to be one of the parents. Such a great group. Special thanks goes to Team Mom, Terra and Diana for all their coordination!
On to the fun...team dinner at Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and then walking The Las Vegas Strip. We took in a lot and the girls came back exhausted (as did parents). Ramona bound today and looking forward to it!
Happy Memorial Day and may we remember the cost of our freedom! Proud to live in this great country!
