Last week we wrapped up our Western Loudoun Basketball League season with the playoffs. Maddie’s 5th grade Tigers team was able to win Coach Castellano his first championship in an exciting 21-18 win over the Cardinals (the first basketball trophy in our house). My 4th grade Commodores weren’t so lucky. We fell 13-11 in the first round of the playoffs to a feisty Bulldogs team. I’m proud to say every girl on my team scored this season and they all improved as competitors.
There will be lots of photos like ours of girls and boys from 2nd grade through high school holding trophies. The sense of accomplishment and teamwork it takes to earn one are the lessons we hope they remember. Congratulations to all the teams who participated in the championship games, and many thanks to the board members who made such a great season possible.
The snow pushed things back a bit and there are a few games left to play. Check out the WLBL website for the remaining schedule.
