It was senior night at Hammond. We honored four wonderful individuals who will go on in life and be as productive as they are in basketball at Hammond, said Hammond coach Shawn Dack speaking about Macy Wilson, Gabby Marshall, Brianne Langtry, and Alyssa Crosby.
And that is really what coaching is all about. A lot of people think its Xs and Os but to us (the girls program) its about life. And how exactly are you going to go about it, especially when life knocks you down!!! I cant tell you how proud I am I these seniors and this team. What a wonderful group of girls. And I also have to mention how great their parents and families are. Hammond is such a wonderful community and school. I am very blessed to have had the opportunity to work here. The girls worked really well tonight. At some spots in the game we stood around to much again, especially first half, but we got going in second. Senior night is emotional so Im glad we got through it. Now we can focus on our finish.
