defending my girls
There was a discussion list earlier titled "youngest ABL starting five" and my team (centrals women) was mentioned as one of the younger sides, as we all work in this fishbowl industry it was brought to my attention by a club member that the follow-up message to my team being mentioned was something about their average losing margin
...well I did the math and the average losing margin was only 36.3 points. You people are quick to point out our downfalls but where is the mention that centrals girls are playing better basketball than they have in years, where is the praise for these young girls playing competitive basketball for the first time in most peoples memory, yes we are young, yes we haven't won a game in four years, the players don't need you to remind them of that, they think about it every day but they still come to their 3 trainings a week and work their butts off so in a few years they will be saying remember when nobody thought we could compete in this game.
To our supporters...we can see the light at the end of the tunnel, just give us some time. To the rest of the comp we may not be running beside you right now but you aren't out of our sights anymore, to my players don't let the occasional set back discourage your progression.
