Veteran NYO Girls Basketball Star Shines at Lovett stars

(This is part of the continuing series on girls who played in the NYO girls basketball program and have gone on to start for their high school team).
Jayden Worswick came to the NYO basketball program in 2010 as a precocious rookie league player, where she was a star from the start, and she stayed and played 6 seasons at NYO. She learned at a young age that ball handling skills would be critical, no matter what position she would eventually play; to excel, she needed the ability to dribble with either her left or right hand, and she needed to be able to create scoring opportunities off of the dribble.
Jayden learned how to handle pressure in our league, especially when on the free throw line. As a rookie player at NYO, she missed 2 free throws when she was at the line, late in a game.  The second time this happened to her, she made 1 of 2 free-throws, and the third time, she made both of them. A part of her success in basketball has come from learning to deal with pressure, and her experience at NYO helped her in that ability. Jayden also learned the value of teamwork, and the need to make the players around her better, when she was among the most skilled on her team.
Jayden won a few championships at NYO, and she learned how to win with grace, when that happened.  However, she lost her share of championship games as well.  She learned that a leader needs to learn how to lose, too, but those losses only fueled her fire to compete, to practice every day, and to improve her skills, every day.
Jayden carried her abundant skills to hish school, where she started at the 2 guard spot her freshman year at Lovett, where she found much success on the court.  She even had a 25 point game for the Lions, which finished 17-12 and made the state AAA play-offs, bowing out to Dawson County.  Lovett will be blessed with talent at the 2 spot, for 3 more years.
Jayden hopes to continue her basketball career in college; the picture may give you a hint about what she is thinking.

Congrats to the Minors Bandits on Winning the Regular Season and Tournament Championships

The Bandits had a great season winning both the Regular Season Championship and the Tournament Championship.  Led by Coaches Kent Tucker and Lee Carroll, the Bandits lived by their #1 rule for this season...HAVE FUN!  The likes of Jerry Reed, House of Pain, and Ed Shearin emanated from their large Orange Job Rocker between innings in every game.  You could always tell when the Bandits were playing as the tunes would be blaring.  The best part of the season was that each one of the Bandits had a moment in the sun with a big hit or a big defensive play to help the team win a game.  It was a true team effort this season for the Bandits!  Great job girls!

Dugout Doings: A Bittersweet Mother's Day

For Stacy Hanley, the first woman to serve on the executive committee of the NYO board, this Mother's Day will be filled with mixed emotions. But more on that, later. First, you need to meet Stacy: Wife, Mom, attorney,  10-year  NYO volunteer and a loving daughter. Although it's been two years since her oldest, Colin, played Bronco baseball, it takes Stacy 30 minutes to make her way past the Jane Wilkins Field, where Bronco games are played, after she leaves an NYO meeting in the nearby Dowis building. 
'I haven't been at the field in two years,' Stacy says. 'But I knew two-thirds of the people there.' Friendship is what makes NYO special for her. In response to a question about how NYO could improve, Stacy answers: 'I'm not sure we need to make it better. Maybe a tweak, here or there. But it's the greatest volunteer organization, and it's remarkable that we pull all of this off with volunteers.' And friendship with those volunteers is at the core of NYO. 'For me, it's a way to feel connected and to feel) purposeful. I like being connected to people.' Mothers like Stacy are the unsung heroes of NYO, which is why we have saluted Jane Wilkins, Pam Miller and Paige Fielden on other Mother's Days. (To read more, please click the headline)
