I am a coach for Scholastic Bowl(Academic Team) at the school where I work. I have done this for 7 years. This year, the Varsity is what I like to call "my dream team"...it is the first team I tried out as Freshman and picked and turned out....I may not ever qualify to play the game....... but I DO know how to pick the people that can. True, I am the Frosh/Soph coach but they start with me and then move up to Varsity when they are Juniors. Yesterday was my birthday and we had games all day.
My kids(Varsity and Frosh/Soph) got me a birthday cake with our emblem on it(the photo aboe is the back of my shirt)....and me without my camera. It only occurred to me later that I could've used my cell phone camera....duh.The good news is that Varsity and Frosh/Soph are currently in First place in our league (consisting of 10 schools) and Frosh/Soph went undefeated yesterday......a very satisfying day....even if I did turn the speed limit (55 for those of you that are thinking some OTHER speed limit!!)
