What has this got to do with hunting? Not a whole lot, but very few people can ever say that they were part of a state championship team in any sport. These girls had been praticing since the 8th grade for this moment and Denise and I were glad to be a part of it.
The phone rang Friday and it was Paul on the line. Excitedly he told me how his girls team had made it through the play-offs of the 5-A Girls Soccer Championship and were playing in Clinton. Could we please come?
His daughters are Hillary and Haley. Both are exceptional athletes and excel in soccer. Later, Wanda called and was so excited that we could not say no. I do not know much about soccer and was hesitant to go but their insistence made Denise, Camo and I pack up and head out Saturday morning.
We met at the camp, dropped Camp off to visit with Dad and Trigger and headed to the big game. Gulfport -vs- Madison Central, one game for the state championship.
The Lady Admirals of Gulfport played hard defensive ball and scored when they had the chance.
Hillary was a whirling dervish across the field and I wish I knew the other girls that played so hard. They were true underdogs and pulled out a stunning victory 3-0. Congratulations to all of them and of course they couldn't have done it without Paul continually screaming from the sidelines.
Denise and I want to personally congratulate Hillary and Haley on a great victory. You deserve those championship medals!
