Some of you have been following the exploits of the Mechanicsburg Girls Soccer team. They are currently 21-0 and ranked 16th in the nation according to USA Today. Tonight Caroline and her team the play Manheim Central High School (Lancaster area) for the District 3 Championship at Hershey Park Stadium. If you are interested, the game starts at 5:3pm.
Meanwhile, in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Calvin College (26-1) will be trying to secure an automatic bid to the NCAA Division 3 volleyball tournament. Allyson is a starting right-side hitter on a team that has been ranked #1 in the nation for most of the season. Calvin will secure an automatic bid by winning the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association tournament this weekend. And even if they lose, it is likely that they will receive an at-large bid. (In 2016, they rode an at-large bid to the National Championship).
So what does this mean for the proud parents.? Joy just left for Grand Rapids. She will be spending the weekend watching volleyball. I am staying here in south central Pennsylvania and will be watching soccer in Hershey tonight.
We never expected that our November would be so busy or that we would have to split-up to watch our kids compete for championships. (I played sports through college, but never came close to winning anything! 🙂 )
