The conference championship was not on the minds of the girls though once the match was finished. After the match, they went right to Leia Vanmeter, a 3rd grader enrolled at Franklin Road Christian School. Leia became a big fan of the team while watching her older sister play in the same tournament that the Eagles had competed in earlier in the season. During the tournament she befriended Senior, Abigail Pray and Sophomore Caitlin Warnshuis.

According to her mom, she wanted so badly to attend the next time Plymouth Christian would play against her school! She was looking forward to seeing her friends again…but due to being sick, she was not able to attend the game at Franklin Road on October 5th.

Leia was determined to see her friends again despite missing the game at Franklin Road. So, she attended their very next conference game at Southfield Christian! After the game the whole team talked with her, took pictures with her, and even signed a ball for her. A very special moment for both the Varsity team and for Leia.

Philippians 2:1-2(NIV)

Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.
