Basketball Rose Ceremonies

This was lovely and totally new to me. Each school celebrated their Varsity team's last home game with a rose ceremony, playing "Pomp and Circumstance" while calling each player's name.  The player then gave the rose that they received to their mom.  The ceremony took very little time, but the music and the commemorative effort reminded me that these kids won't be playing again together and that they are all off to high school soon.  Too bad; it is thrilling to hear the announcers when they chant each kids' name, especially after a basket.  "That was K from IHM, Number 52!"

Great games this weekend, too.  K had three games among her two leagues and they won all; G had one and won that one too.  I missed pictures because I was driving between one and the other, unfortunately, but I made it for the rose ceremonies, at least!
