This past summer Mackenzie decided to change her "extra-curricular" focus from musical theater to Volleyball and Basketball. She went to a few camps at her high school over the summer to help her develop the skill. Then she announced that she was going to try out for the Volleyball team. As a parent I was a bit nervous about her not making it since her experience (compared to others who were trying out) was practically non-exsistent! I thought it was going to be a "sorry you did not make the team" life lesson.
Well, weren't we all surprised and elated when she made the Frosh/Soph Volleyball team! We were all so excited for her and so was she!! The practice and game schedule has been difficult (for mom) to keep up with, but the experience has been wonderful. The all day Saturday tournaments were tough, but were also lots of fun with lots of playing time.
Mackenzie has been developing her volleyball skills and her team has really grown together.
She picked the #12 because it is the day of her birthday (and it was an even number)
Here is the team...lot of beautiful and talented girls. #1 and #18 are sooo talented and their volleyball talent is amazing!
