Gainesville Tournament

We got home from Gainesville really late last night after we played the Championship game! Which we won! :) I had lots of fun but I am glad to be home! Here are some pictures from this week!

We were able to tour and practice at the University of Florida's practice facility!

This is the theater room where they watch film on other teams and prepare for games! It just so happens that they were playing Nebraska the day we were there!

Because the Gators are playing in the National Championship they are still practicing, so one day we went down to the field and got to take pictures with some of the players!

The Team with Michael and Butchie, both of them graduated from TFA and played for our Football team!

The Starting Quarterback Chris Leak!!!!

The other quarterback, Tim Tebow!

We defiantly had a tough week. Many of us were battling sickness and we lost 2 girls to serious injuries in the 3rd game. One of our girls hit her head hard on the floor after being pushed going up for a layup and got a concussion and is out for a week or so. And another one was rushed to the hospital after the game because she was so dehyrated. After being hooked up to an IV for a couple of ours she was okay, but she was only able to play limited minutes in the next game. We won the Championship game and now we get to take the last few days of our break off to heal ourselves :)

I haven't had much time to blog lately because I have been gone so much! In fact, I still am! I'm in Gainesville this week for the Florida Prospects Tournament. We've won our first 2 games and play again tonight at 8:30.

We had such a great time in Phoenix last week. We won 2 and lost 2. Playing at the level we did is going to help us so much as it comes time for the state play offs. We placed 6th overall, which is pretty good. Here are a few quick pictures from last week in Arizona!!! I'll post more later when I load them to the comptuer!

It's Basketball Season!!!

Wow it's been a long time! I have been so busy lately with basketball and school that I haven't had anytime to blog! School is slowing coming to an end though! This week is exam week then we are out until next year! :) Here's a little basketball update and our schedule for the next couple weeks :)...

The whole month of December is pretty much dominated by basketball. Last weekend the JV girls and boys and the Varsity girls and boys were all in Tallahassee. We left Friday morning and all 4 teams played Florida High Friday night. Saturday we played North Florida Christian School(the team we beat in the State Championship game) and the boys played Maclay High School. We won both games, but the boys unfortunatly lost both. They were both very close games though! Sunday morning we all went to Church at North Florida Baptist Church. We planned to leave right after church but were delayed when our bus wouldn't start! We were stuck for about 3 1/2 hours before someone fixed the bus! Thankfully the Church let us stay in one of the building while we were waiting. We had pizza and played games while we waited for the bus to be fixed!

We leave for Phoenix, Arizona for the Nike Tournament of Champions next Sunday morning! We have been working since last year to raise money for this trip and we are excited that it is finally here! This past week our team was ranked 5th in the Nation for girls basketball by Sports Illuistrated Magazine! We are very excited about that and very honored as well! The Lord has blessed our team greatly over the past couple years and it has been such a fun expirence being apart of this team.

We get home from Phoenix December 22nd are home for Christmas then head our again the 26th for another tournament in Gainesville, Florida! (I told you December was dominated by basketball!)
