Schedules and Scores
God has given me the opportunity to play both basketball and volleyball here at CCC, and I am so thankful! The girls I've had the privilege
to play sports with are my closest friends. Every day before practice, we share prayer requests, praises, or a passage from God's Word. It's
awesome being challenged by my own teammates to grow more Christ-like through playing basketball and volleyball. I will never forget the
memories I've made and the blessings I've received while playing sports.
