Like mother, like daughter


Did you know…?
When my sister Gladys was 13 years old, she won the Principal’s Award for top 8th grade female athlete. She had a volleyball serve that was near impossible to return.

It must run in the family—like mother, like daughter. Sometimes watching my niece Brittany playing sports is like watching a mini-version of her mom. Britt already has a collection of at least 20 trophies, medals and ribbons. Only 9-years old and just starting 4th grade, I can’t wait to see how many awards she racks up by the time she graduates from high school (hopefully SI). She and her teammates play well together in all three sports—volleyball, soccer and basketball—and they’re fortunate to have coaches that stress the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship. Keep it up, SC Irish!

This season, CYO girls teams are playing volleyball. Britt’s 4th grade team is currently undefeated (6-0) with two games left in the regular season.

By the way, look closely at the middle picture above. I just now noticed after uploading the images, both of Britt’s feet are off the ground.
