These girls may not win a lot but they do have the biggest hearts and care about their community. We appreciate all who donated baked items and those who purchased items or made a monetary donation. They are also great sports and love working together as a team and seeing the positive in every game played.

This team should be nominated because they haven’t given up. I watch the team play and they show the best sportsmanship, from helping someone when they fall, always asking if someone is okay, and always say a good job, good luck, and good game. They have won only a few games but they never let it bring them down. they always try their best to the very last minute. They are also very supportive of each other.

The Cumberland Clippers have a tradition where they award their best player a game ball. After winning a hard-fought 2-1 game with an outstanding performance by the opposing goalkeeper, the Cumberland team called over the opposing goalkeeper and awarded her the game ball. As a grandparent in the stands, I could not have been more proud of those girls, not because they won, but because the coaches and the girls knew she was the best player on the field that day.
