MT. IRON – Hi! My name is Maddy and I am from MI-B Merritt Elementary. Why I am writing [is that] my mom convinced me. Today I am writing about my team that won the championship game. Here’s how it started: We had three games and we won all of them and then we had one full game and then we had the championship game; it ended at 15 to 9 and we were screaming and hugging.
My friend Sammie was crying because she made the last shot of the game. And then we got Fun Dip candy and a medal and a cupcake. My mom was so proud of me. Well. they are always proud of me all the time.
Well I am done. Bye.
