The Elite Eight

Dylan had his first basketball game Friday night and his team won. It was a great game--and by great I mean AWESOME! These kids are 5 and 6-year-olds who for the most part have never played basketball before. And they were fabulous! They passed the ball to each other, cheered each other on, rebounded, scrapped for loose balls, kept a good spirit, and just played amazingly! They won the game by 1 point, and it was very, very nail-biting there at the end with the other team calling a time out with only 20 seconds left in the game. Final score 10-9, Ellendale Sharks!

Great kids, great game. Between the Godsey's, the Bell's, and the Sullivan's families, the gym was packed.
