last weekend aaron's youth club coaching came to an unfortunate end. they were in state cup and so far had been overachieving, giving themselves the chance to make it to the final 4 with just one more win. they were ranked 11 of 12 and had done really well...but prom reared its ugly head. about 10 of the boys had their senior prom saturday night night before the game. needless to say, the team got off to a slow start and didn't quite have enough left to get the job done. they lost 2-1.
even though it didn't end on a great note, they had a great season and aaron really enjoyed these boys even though he only coached them this one season. after the game so many of the parents and boys told aaron that this was their most memorable season and they were sorry it was over. the parents were so grateful for aaron mentioning his character and moral leadership for their boys. of course, i'm not surprised, but its great that there was still such a positive impression at the end!
