Congrats to Cailey Bracken - All-American Volleyball Player

     Earlier this month, freshman Outside Hitter Cailey Bracken became the first player to represent the Mineral Area College volleyball program as a NJCAA Division 1 All-American.  She led her team in kills (407) and digs (381) as the team finished 10th in the National Tournament.  She had a season high 22 kills in a four game victory over Butler.  She is a graduate of Bishop DuBourg High School and played CYC volleyball at St. Joan of Arc.  Congratulations Cailey from all of us at the CYC.

Pop Quiz:

Name the last three Super Bowl winners.

Name the last three World Series Champions.

Name the last three Academy Award winners for Best Picture.

What? You don’t know without googling. OK, here’s a new quiz.

Who was your favorite teacher growing up?

How about your favorite coach?

What was the most fun time you and your friends ever had as kids?

While you were thinking about the answers to the last three questions, your mind probably flooded with all sorts of people and all kinds of experiences.

You loved your third grade basketball coach, because he always took the team out for pizza, win or lose.

On the other hand, your high school basketball coach wrote the letter of recommendation that got you into college.

And there was the time you dunked on the hoop in Jimmy’s driveway. Only you and Jimmy’s dad saw it, but it was cool.

The score doesn’t matter. The trophies don’t matter. It’s the people, and the positive experiences you had with those people, that do.

As a coach, parent, teammate or fan, are you helping make each practice or game a positive experience for all those involved?
