Abbey's Basketball Championship Game

Abbey's basketball team went undefeated through their whole season. After the season, they go to playoffs and her team made it all the way to the finals. This past Saturday was the championship game. The girls played their hearts out but, sadly, they had their first loss of the season. The team we played had nothing to lose and played tough and we just ran out of time to come back in the end. It was a hard loss for the girls as they wanted to be undefeated so badly but....such is life.

Before the game as their names were announced...Abbey
is the one who is running opposite of everyone else.

Abbey is #14...guarding a player. It was hard for me to
get many action shots with my camera as they all came out
too dark.

The sadness is showing now :( It didn't seem to matter
at that moment that they were the best team in the league
and unfortunately had their first loss during the big game.

The team finally being forced to give us a few smiles.

winning 1st place in league

This was one of those teams that was full of great girls as
well as great families to support them and I truly feel that
this is what made this team so good. Here are the girls with
all their parents. (Even Ella made the photo if you closely in
the middle of the picture)

A little ice cream brought the smiles back for Abbey and
her teammate Emma

Oops...we forgot to get a picture of Abbey with mom
and dad earlier so we had to remember to take one
at home.

Mama Mason-Mann said...

Aww, too bad they lost! They had such a great season and should be so proud of themselves! I know all their families are!!! Thanks for sharing the pictures!

Bummer. It's hard to lose, especially when your team is so good! My daughter, Anna, had the same happen to their indoor soccer team. Undefeated til the last game. Season ended bittersweet. Abbey looks like she bounced back :-)
