Anthony has helped coach the Rich Rebels Girls Basketball team for the last four years and every February we spend a week at the State Tournament. The team works all year with the hopes of winning the state title. Last year was a heart breaking year, we were the team to beat and lost in the final game by 1 point. This year we were once again the team to beat and everyone new we could do it. For those of you who have never lived in small community you may not understand the amount of pride and support that our team has. High school sports is what we do here, it is everyones "night out on the town" If we want to go do somthing fun we go to a high school game; football, basketball, whatever is going on. The tournament is 4.5 hours away and yet we always have hundreds of fans who travel to support the team. Are fans are easy to spot everyone from 2 year olds to 70 year olds wear bright blue shirts sporting there "Rebel pride" We all know each other and look out for each other. It is pretty awesome! Anyway the team played so well together and they won!! The girls that are seniors are the girls Anthony started with as Freshman so he has been with them from the beinging. We have won 14 of the last 16 state Volleyball titles but this is the first ever state basketball title boys or girls for Rich High so it was a pretty exciting night!

The kids were little troopers at the tournement. They are just taking it easy in Kaitlens stroller. Sometimes it gets long watching game after game but they did so good.

There favorite part was all the swimming they got to do at the Hotel. We are all glad to be home for a few days before we head to Disneyland on Tuesday.
