    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
