Little Elm Softball Tournament Day 3

Today was day three of the Little Elm softball tournament.  We've faced some really great teams so far and done well.  Most of the time our home school team only plays against other private high school teams. But this tournament lets us play the Big Boys!  

All of the teams we've faced were 5A and 6A schools from the Dallas/Fort Worth area.  Our first game of the day was against Frisco Heritage HS.  It was a really fun game to watch because the teams were evenly matched.  In the end our Chargers lost 13 - 14.  The second game of the day was against Frisco's Wakeland High School.  

Wakeland is the team that has played after us most of the weekend so the moms got to interact with their team while our girls were playing.  I was impressed with the girls and the coaches on the team.  One of the funniest moments was when a player from Wakeland said, 'oh that's neat that they let you (homeschoolers) play sports!' 

Unfortunately we lost to Wakeland, but we left the tournament with four wins and two losses and that was a better showing than we had last year.  Not too shabby for team with no school, no practice fields, and volunteer coaches!  Go Chargers! 

In all things show yourself to be an example of good deeds, with purity in doctrine, dignified, sound in speech which is beyond reproach, so that the opponent will be put to shame, having nothing bad to say about us.  Titus 2:7-8
