Well, our basketball season is coming to a close. Jason's town league team had its last regular season game on Friday night, and will have a tournament next week.
Last weekend our Lighthouse teams competed in the NCHE Eastern Regional homeschool basketball tournament, and our Lighthouse Varsity girls and Varsity Boys both advanced to the state tournament this weekend. There are only 2 JV girls teams in the state this year ( lots of programs only have middle school and Varsity ), so Amanda's team also went to the state tournament, along with the middle school girls' team which Mark coaches. Amanda's team won their game on Saturday and took home the trophy! Eric's varsity team lost their first game on Friday to a very strong team from Greensboro, and then played in the consolation game on Saturday against the Raleigh Hawks, playing hard but losing by 6 points. This was our third time playing against the Hawks in two weeks, and the closest game. It helped that they were missing a couple of players. :-)
The middle school girls team lost their first game on Friday, but won their consolation game by 1 point, and were elated!
This week will be the annual Parent-Player games, which is always a lot of fun, and then the Awards Night a week later.
The Varsity Boys will play in one more tournament - the HSPN East Coast Homeschool Championships, held at Liberty University in March.
Then Eric will truly be done with his high school basketball career. :-(
Time marches on.
