Lia is now on a small team this year with just five other girls. Two of them are her good friends Sienna and Mollie and Mollie's dad is the coach. Lia has really started to progress in the sport this year since she is not just trying to figure out the basic rules of the game. She is getting more confident and aggressive and is going to have way more game time this season since there are so few girls on her team. I think that we made the right decision to move here.
Today was her first game and ironically Lia's team played against her old coach and old teammates. It sure felt strange to sit at the other end of the gym from so many parents who we rooted and cheered with last year! But the girls fought a good fight til the bitter end even though they didn't win. Here are some pictures of the game.

Lia got to play point guard this game and was able to bring the ball down court several times.
