Basketball and Spell Bowl

Lexi had a very busy week.  First, she was an alternate on the Elementary School Spell Bowl team, as they had their yearly competition. The team won their division at the site they were at, finished second overall at the site, and tied for 11th in the state in their division.

Then, she had a basketball double-header.  Unfortunately, her team lost both games in tough fashion, getting down early, then fighting back just to fall a bit short.  It was one of those days where the shots just didn't fall.  Lexi made terrific improvements from last week, handling the ball, grabbing a couple of rebounds, and being more aggressive to loose balls and on defense.  She also received her first foul, cutting off the ball on a fastbreak.  She was in position to take a charge, but I think she got a little nervous because she put out her hands, shuffled back and closed her eyes.  However, I was really proud how she got in position and was involved in several loose ball tie-ups.
