Cat played a lot of soccer this spring. She was on her school's co-ed middle school soccer team, which meant practice during the designated class period at school every day, and after-school games. Her coach loved having her and has already designated her as next year's captain, though next year the boys and girls will play separately. Cat had lots of fun on this team with so many friends from school.
She wasn't able to attend all of the school games, though, because of her commitment to her club team. This required attendance at multiple practices/games per week, including the State Cup Tournament in North Salt Lake during the week at the beginning of May. Her team didn't win the tournament, but they did well enough to receive a spot at the Far West Regional Tournament in Hawaii. So later in the summer, Cat traveled to Hawaii to compete with her team. (Pictures are forthcoming.) She loved being on this team and competing with them all season, and at the end of the school year when they had tryouts and finalized their roster for next year, she was excited to have a spot on next year's team too.
Last of all are these posed shots taken by Cat's teammate's father, a professional photographer passionate about sports photography, as a fundraiser for his daughter for the Hawaii tournament. I love them.
