It was touch and go for both. For Claire, she’s got some club volleyball conflicts so at first she wasn’t going to try out. But it would be the only time she and Grace could play together and she’s really pretty good at tennis so I told her maybe she should just give it a try. She came home from tryouts glowing like it was the best thing on the planet. And then she made the team. So we are on the journey of trying to juggle these two sports just for a little bit.
For Grace, there were only so many varsity spots and there are some incredibly good seniors so she really had to fight it out. A couple girls decided not to try out this year for some odd reason, and she was able to work hard to win a spot.
Dave and I sat on the sidelines that first home match on Monday just basking in the glory of tennis again. It felt so good to be there watching those girls of ours swing away.
It’s already been a full tennis week this first week…three matches and team pictures.
