Summer Ball. Friendships are forged and team dynamics are tested. Winning matters less and experimentation matters more. So do snow cone runs. They matter the most. And so it begins….the end. Dehr is a senior. How, how, HOW can this be? Please someone…tell me where the rewind button is. I. Am. Not. Ready. Every moment is a reminder that this is the last time. So, here it is…HHS high school girls basketball testing the court.
I must apologize, this is not my best work. Hand holding the 70-200 beast of a lens one handed while wrestling a one year old tested my abilities and my patience. And the light in these old rec gyms was rough. But I am going to try something new, and say they are good enough given the circumstances, and this day mattered, so I am sucking it up and sharing them with you.
Heritage traveled to Springfield MO for the Trilakes Shootout for some girls basketball action.
Mere came out of the chute with arms and legs (and curly ponytail) flying. She is upperclass now, and she has her jaw set like one. Anyone who wants her starting spot is going to have to be ready to battle. And that is what makes a good team better. Everyone wins when the game is upped internally.
Introducing Amber. She is the newest member of the team, and threw on number 14, and headed to the court as point. She has a big jersey and position to replace Em…but she’s got the grit to go for it.
Another new face is Sydney, the baby of the team, and the first freshman to play up.
Sorry girl, you’ll remember that screen you slammed into tomorrow when you sit up to get out of bed. Way to set that like a big dog, Dehr, and way to capitalize on it A.T. I was panning to follow Amber, and she was going so fast everything else is blurry. This girl has some speed.
No, LIb Lib, it wasn’t called a charge. Way to get it done, you looked good out there girl.
In your eye, sweetheart.
And whoever thought (me) that hand signals were a baseball/softball thing were very mistaken.
And a little JV action with Kate, Kayla and Jaysley.
First ever moment in the history of ever that Dehring or Hailey didn’t block or lay someone out who was throwing something up under the basket. Consider it an early Christmas gift, Harrison…and don’t expect another.
Are your ankles okay, girls???
Nice drive and control of your opponent, Dehr.
Sorry sister, those skinny legs are stronger than you thought, aren’t they?
And this is where the game got tense, and where I wish I was able to get off more frames to tell the story better. We were up by one, with Harrison in possession, and Dehr fought through several defenders to contest this shot.
It bounces off the rim, and Lib and Dehr fighting for the rebound, and sealing the win with a possession as the last seconds of the clock ran out.
3-0 feels good.
