I hope youâ€™ve had a great holiday season. The old year has now passed and weâ€™re two days into the new year. Some people make New Yearâ€™s resolutions, and theyâ€™re hard to keep.
Iâ€™m going to try something simple this year. My friend, Nina Vu, a.k.a. the â€śPing Pong Master, has a saying â€” â€śWake up, be amazing and go to bed.â€ť I like that, but Iâ€™m going to put my own wrinkle on it â€” â€śWake up, be amazing, serve, make a new friend a day and go to bed.â€ť

However, the host Heavener teams could not follow suit as both lost to Acorn. The Lady Tigers held off the Lady Wolves 60-54 and the Tigers beat the Wolves 54-45.
