Mighty, Mighty 4 & 5 Year-Olds

At the West Mabee Boys & Girls Club they had something simple but exciting happen to their Mighty Mite basketball team. Most may not know this, but the Might Mite basketball team consist of only five players. Four out of the five players are only four years old. Needless to say, it's hard for the four-year-olds to hold on to the ball and is even harder for them to shoot the ball towards a eight foot goal!

Despite their size, something must have gotten into them (maybe they ate their Wheaties that morning) because they scored a season high 12 points and won the first game of the season! Talk about some happy little kids, you would have thought they had won the college national championship. What was even better was that all the players parents may have been more excited about the outcome of the game then the kids were. Toren, the only 5-year-old on the team, was asked how he felt about the win, "Since we won the game you have to take us to Incredible Pizza."  If all our wins are going to be this exciting -- we can hardly wait for the next one.
