Sandy Thomas enrolled in soccer when she was in first grade
. She had loved to watch the soccer games on TV with her dad. Sandy’s dad was a high school soccer coach. It was his passion
, as well as hers. Sandy was elated when she convinced
her parents to let her play soccer rather than take ballet
. Her friends were astonished
as they had all signed up for ballet
her to, as well.
The team she was on this year was called, The Blue Jets. She was playing her favorite
position, goalie. She practices at home with a goal
her dad made for her. He tries to make the goal
and she blocks it almost every time.
