They did it! Our girls won it all in the 1A basketball state championship in Baker City this weekend and it was absolutely incredible. Best Baker trip ever!
These girls are phenomenal ballers, and I am so, so proud of them all. I've watched them play since they were little girls and love every single one of them. I think my eyes were welled up from happy tears for them all for a solid hour after the final buzzer rang!
And I can't even express how proud of my husband I am. Or how happy I am for him. He's been coaching basketball for 18 years, longer than we've even been married, and after taking over the girls team that hadn't won a single game in years, building up the girls program from basically nothing, he's brought his team to the final eight in Baker 5 of the past 8 years. Amazing accomplishment.
Basketball is a big part of our family's identity and I look forward to many more years supporting our school - and watching our own kids play all the way through too!
Celebration time! Let's just say we had ourselves a good evening on Saturday night and finally climbed into our hotel bed in the wee hours. Did I mention it was the best Baker trip ever? :)
