AB and Pita started playing Upward basketball this month. I missed Pita's game but I'm sure she is as big a superstar as AB.
Back in the day, we called it church league. My team, First Baptist, always got their tail handed to them by Mt. Zion Baptist. Always. But now, they have Upward, which is a nationwide program. In Pita and AB's age groups, they are focused on learning the basic skills and rules of the game.
They started the game by playing music and announcing each player's name as they run from the tunnel.
Just like professionals!
AB (#11 in blue) attempts a shot!
The basketball magician of the team was Pita and AB's cousin, Lily. She scored 22 of their 24 points!
I'm looking forward to seeing Pita play too!
