Holly has been playing soccer this season, but I’ve neglected to mention it on the site until now. I can’t keep quiet any longer, because in this Saturday’s game, Holly was named MVP! This is her first season to play, but she has been improving rapidly, particularly on defense. In this game, she didn’t let the other team near the goal for the first 58 minutes of the 60 minute game. Yes, the other team finally scored when the game was almost over, but it was The Twisters’ first tie (and first non-loss). Several of the girls nominated Holly as MVP, and the coach said she would have overridden them and given it to Holly no matter what.
Holly’s Oklahoma grandmother (Mamaw) was visiting us and also got to see Holly’s great performance.
