Flashback Friday — Get Your Head in the Game

Catherine is now officially a member of the Hofstra University Women’s Rugby Club, so I’m flashing back to her brief forays into athletic activity.

She comes by her middling athletic ability honestly, inheriting my DNA and not her father’s in this case, but our church athletic activities did get her off the couch a bit — albeit grudgingly.

A Vanech face-off! Catherine amazed herself by hitting the ball.

The image above, from the 2012 GOYA regional  athletic tournament, remains a keeper. The Vanech face-off was just one piece of a very long day of games, games and more games — every kind of athletic activity you could dream of. It ended with our church’s volleyball team being served a loss.

Here she is serving the ball in 2013.

Tomorrow, Catherine will run out to get her very first pair of cleats, a mouth guard and some other gear.

Compared to many of her peers, she’s late to the game, but no matter. She’s finally fielding some fun.
