Go-Hawk Girls Basketball

The kids & I have enjoyed following the Waverly Shell-Rock varsity girls basketball team the last couple months.  The head coach was in our small group at church.  I took the kids to their first basketball game on a whim one night when Austin was out of town.  We went to three other games, including the two tournament games to make it to the state tournament.  The Go-Hawk girls had an outstanding, record-breaking season.  They won their 3rd straight conference championship, won the most games in a season and lost in the semi-finals at the state tournament.  It was so much fun to watch a really good girls team and to introduce the kids to an activity I grew up on (attending high school basketball games).  The kids did pretty well, and even though they seemed more interested in the candy they purchased at half time, I know they picked up on things.  Going to games was also a good learning opportunity for making spending decisions with their treat money.  The $.50 Ring Pops were definitely a hit!  Congratulations to Coach Bodensteiner and the whole team on an outstanding season!
