Saturday we did not perform to the best of our potential and for that I am extremely sorry and want to apologize to our fans, school, parents, coaching staff, and all of Lady Brave Nation past, present, and future but most importantly this team of extraordinary ladies. I alone am responsible for the outcome of this game and do take full ownership. I am charged with leading this exceptional group of girls to be successful and have done a poor job these past few games. I promised them light at the end of the tunnel and gave them heartbreak, confusion, and unbelief, which was not my intent but what is apparently the result. This game was to be the first victory for a potentially undefeated rest of the season, yet sadly it was not. We pride ourselves or at least I attempt to emphasize the importance of self improvement daily. I deemed this year “The Rise” as I foresaw and intended for this group to transcend past history from all the ridicule and hardships and give this program birth to new life and reinstate it to its once former glory. Maybe too much pressure or too lofty of a goal but if you were to know them, you would know it is achievable for this group. Success is a peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming. I just want to reiterate again how extremely sorry I am that I have let you all down. You get out of things what you put into them and sometimes you can have the right motives or best of intentions but not the proper method of conveying those. Success develops from two beliefs inside of a person that must be acted upon 1. What I am going through is only temporary as the future can be better than the present and 2. I have the power to make it so. So without directly robbing Mr. Tebow’s Promise let me make one of my own in saying with God as my witness I promise to give ALL I can to this program, even more than I though was possible before when I was giving my all, because that is what you all deserve. Good will come out of this because you will see me coach like I never have before in order to get the best out of myself, this team, and each and every one of you each and every day I am capable of doing so. “The Rise” Eyes on the Horizon is still on, just watch.
Our Four County Counseling Center Impact Player of the Game was Monica Moore who had 16 rebounds, 9 of those offensive. Monica also had 6 points and a steal. We are just starting to see what greatness lies on the inside of her, can’t wait to see where that ends up. Other statistical contributors for the Lady Braves were Lilly Maple with 12 points, 2 assists, 4 rebounds, and 3 steals, Alex Merritt had 6 points, 8 rebounds, Averi Miller with 5 points, Ashley Jess with 3 points, 8 rebounds, and 2 steals, McKenna Wilson with 2 points, 2 assists, 4 rebounds, and 2 steals, and last but not least Atlanta Huckelby with 2 points.
Congrats to our Student Athlete of the Game Elizabeth Jo Inglis sponsored by insurance agent Mike McDonald from Indiana Farm Bureau. Also thank you to our GameDay sponsor J. Edwards, Pizza Quik, Dutch Cafe, Chris Ousley All State Agency, and the Amboy Market.
