THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT TEENAGERS THAT IS… WELL… UNPREDICTABLE.
Cy Creek's Rori Harmon has been a national basketball recruit since she was in middle school. The spotlight has been white hot as she has exceeded everyone's expectations as a 5-foot-6 point-guard.
Last year, the Cougars rolled through the regular season all the way to the state finals against super-power Duncanville.
Harmon was sent home before the state championship game for violating team rules – a tough pill to swallow for coach, player and team.
"It was very upsetting and it was a big deal for me. I've learned a lot from that situation," Harmon said. "I just had to move on and not let it define me as a person and I've followed through with that."
With a global pandemic bringing the nation's sports to a complete halt at one point, many didn't know how this fall would look.
Slowly but surely a sense of normalcy has returned. For Second Baptist School, that came on September 15, when the women's volleyball team hosted Emery/Weiner.
"I'm so thankful for the Second Baptist School administration and all the hard work they have put in so we can have our season and have school on campus this fall," Second Baptist School senior Bailey Ireland '21 said adding, "I'm really grateful."
