Yesterday I watched my daughter visit and play basketball against WC Abney at the 7th grade level. We lost the game, but I was very impressed by the character and sportsmanship displayed their by the teachers and basketball staff leading the girls at WC Abney. They played with great passion and vigor and in a spirit of fairplay. WOW! I am very impressed! Way to go!
