For four months, we were daily companions, practicing about two hours every weekday. The Peterstown Lady Pirates were an agreeable group of girls this season, few in number but big in heart. When they ordered sweatshirts with “5 players, 1 heartbeat”, I didn’t know how prophetic it would be. We ended the season with five varsity and six jv players. They all played hard in spite of facing squads of 12 and more. Lots of good times and a few tears punctuated a challenging, successful season. Both teams were runners-up in our conference and every player leaves a happy memory for me. Until next year, ladies, be safe and keep shooting!
