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.
