My Sister, the Champion

This kid is a champ.

This is my sister, Grace. Her team just won the Girls’ Basketball Class C State Championship.

Grace is a high school senior. It was thrilling to see her, and her team, do such a wonderful job and take home the win!

My family is from a very small town, and, as I’ve said before, basketball is a really big deal there. So just about the whole darn town drove down to Lansing, 4 hours away, to watch the game.

My grandmother flew from Florida to Michigan to see the game!

I looked at tickets from Seattle, but it was just prohibitively expensive. I wish I had a private jet.

Anyway, we listened to the game online, and man, was it nerve-wracking! But all of the girls did a great job. And they won.

This picture is from the semi-final game on Thursday. My sister is totally ripped -look at those arms!

Such a champ.

So very proud! Congratulations to Grace, all of the girls on the team, and the whole darn town of St. Ignace, Michigan.

  1. Just heard from the champ, well her mother. She’s in the Dominican Republic and right now she is playing basketball with 3 girls from Traverse City St. Francsis against the Hotel staff. Go Grace!
