undefeated

I tried to come up with a clever title....
The Middle School girl's team that Mckenzie plays on and that John coaches finished their season with a conference record of 17-0 and a banner for winning playoffs.  It was a great season.  Not just because they had a winning record, but because they made new friends, worked together as a team through good and bad times and they shared the good news everywhere they went. 
They really were a FORCE this year.  Mckenzie was named to the all-tournament team and I think she was as surprised as anyone when they called her name.  She played great this year and I couldn't be more proud of her than I was when I saw her reach down and help another player from another team up off the floor.  She's got guts of steel and a heart of gold. 
 And my vote goes to Coach Quick for Coach of the Year!  I figured out that he's coached 36 middle school games this season.  That's a lot of jump balls!  Anyways, I'm so proud of both of them.  They are both winners in my book! 


"But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing FORCE  is from God
and not from us."
 2 Corinthians 4:7

Great playing Kenzie!! Congratulations on an awesome season! He surely blessed you. And to Coach...while the record is impressive, what you taught them about being young women is far more lasting.

Congratulations to all of you who make up such an awesome winning team! Jodi said what i was thinking but it bears repeating that your girl takes after you with the guts of steel and heart of gold! And i'd like to nominate you for the biggest supporter, loudest cheerer, and best ever dinner on-the-go maker - kinda like the force behind the FORCE.
