PAHAA always ends the season with an awards banquet to recognize the players, parents, and coaches. This year the banquet was an informal, outdoor event – relaxing and fun for everyone! After fellowship and a potluck meal, each team was addressed by their coach, recognizing the players’ strengths, Godly character traits, and encouraging them in their Christian walk.
Cousins John VanDerSchaaf and Jessica VanDerWilt are this year’s graduating seniors from the Warrior teams. John was a wing and forward for the Varsity boys and has played for the Warriors for 3 years. Jessica played post, and this was her 5th year as a Lady Warrior. All of the PAHAA families are proud of these young adults, and pray God’s blessings over them as they seek His will for their future.
The 2012-2013 season is now underway for the Paris Warriors. Even though it’s the off-season, there will be boys and girls scrimmages held throughout the summer. Be sure and visit the calendar to stay updated. The annual Kick-Off Meeting will be held in August, which is a great oppurtunity to meet other families, ask questions, and find out what’s planned for the year.
