I'm not going to list the names of the girls, but any one of them could be your girl next door. They practice 3 times per week, consistently, and they are in top form. As I type this, they are winning their second game in Milwaukee (per a parent chaperone who is keeping me updated). cg

Fallbrook Warriors just won their competition vs. Catholic Memorial ... 39-0. Tomorrow's game should be streamed. Today's game was advertised as being streamed on YouTube, but no one manned the camera (per one of the parent chaperones.) cg

What happened after Catholic Memorial? I don't see anything in the FVN online for an update.
