Shared with permission from our own Coach Benson: To some people, high school sports are a way to stay in shape, a chance to build character, realize what it's like to win or lose, show your dedication and make memories. But for some it's a way to make life long friends. Ashley and I go way back to high school. We were competitors in high school, teammates in college and now fellow coaches in the same conference at our alma maters. I have nothing but the utmost respect for her and the program she is running. She's teaching these young athletes what sports are really all about and that's being a team player and showing respect and support. Thank you to the De Soto Pirate Volleyball team and staff for showing your amazing sportsmanship and support in a very disappointing and troubling time. 🏐🐾💜
What started out as a fun fall craft in the 4K room turned into an amazing exploration of mixing colors!
