Molly and the Ben Davis girls soccer team celebrate Seniordom
QUEENS OF THE FIELD. Wednesday evening was clear and crisp as the Ben Davis girls soccer team celebrated their seniors, including Molly. All seniors started the game and were honored at halftime with tributes and gifts and escorted for a walk across the field. Cake and cookies were served after the game. Ben Davis sweetened the evening by defeating Warren Central, 2-0.
FOUR YEARS A LADY GIANT. Molly has started for the Lady Giants all but one game since she was a freshman. The only game she missed was due to sitting out for a red card the previous game. Yeah, she's can be a bit rough at times. She's a captain this year and the team is doing well, dropping only two games so far--both to top-five teams in the state. It's just past mid-season, with the Marion County tourney in a week followed by a few more games. Then, the IHSAA state tourney that begins with sectional play.
SPLITTING TIME. Molly's going to be splitting time between soccer practices and musical rehearsals, as she's been given a leading role in the Ben Davis High School music and drama department's presentation of "Little Women" on the weekend of November 21.
IT COMES DOWN TO THIS. Hard to believe all those years of soccer are coming down to a few more high school games. What a joy it has been for us as parents to watch our children play the game, be part of the team, and thrive amid the competition.
