Jillian - basketball

Basketball season number two for Jillian - a 2nd & 3rd grade squad. By the 2nd to last game of the season, things 'clicked' for her and she started playing more aggressively. She had always played tough defense, but was a little shy when it came to offense. I challenged her to take 8 shots during one game and it must have been the incentive she needed. She worked her way inside, shot the ball rather than always passing, and grabbed lots of rebounds. So proud of how much she learned this season!
One of her many shot attempts in her last two games.

Always one to play tough defense, here she took it further
- check out the photo below --
she stole the ball!

The opposing team's best score maker - Jillian shut her out!

At the beginning of the season, Jillian wouldn't have gone after the ball - here she is at the last game, determined to get it!

Team photo after the last game - Jillian made lots of new friends!
