I Say Go, You Say Fight

 We went to Smithville tonight to watch the Falcons battle the Smithies.  Kayla worked the crowd along with her squad.  They worked hard in practice on Thursday and the girls looked great tonight.
 Perky, smiling, young ladies to cheer on the crowd to cheer on the boys.  Unfortunately it wasn't enough for the JV who lost their whole game lead in the last 30 seconds.  It's always amazing to me how quick a team can gain 20 points.
The Varsity on the other hand, never lost their half-time lead.  They played tough the entire game.  This was one of the more mild games we went to see this season.  It seems like the student sections usually get to bantering back and forth so much, it feels hostile.  Not tonight, just a layed back game of basketball.
One thing that doesn't make sense to me is all the fouls in the last minute of the game.  It seems to me if you are losing a game the last thing you want to do is give the other team a chance at 2 more points.  I realize they could miss, but most of the time they don't.  Our last 6 points of this game was made because of free throws due to fouls.  Craziness! 


  1. Boy this brings back many memories of Jack and Craig playing b-ball in high school. I enjoyed the time we spent in those gyms and the running around! Jackie played for Hillsdale his senior year and we had 2 varsity players in two different HS...that wasn't as much fun! Good luck to Hillsdale this year and tell Kayla she looks too cute in her outfit!

  2. My boys played basketball in high school. Such fun!

    Happy New Year...


  3. Hey Kayla - You make a fine cheerleader. We love you and are so proud of you. Such a little grandpa's girl!
