Her mother sent me this photo along with a note:
Hope all is well. We miss seeing you with Ava on the ice. This pic came up on my Facebook memories today of you and Ava 8 years ago. It’s been a crazy but very successful hockey season with Ava & her team winning The Detroit Elite Girls Invite and beating the top teams in the Nation. Ava came out on top in the tournament with points. Then they swept the EJEPL to win that championship and took States, pretty amazing. You’re one of the biggest reason for her success so I wanted to share what was going on and say thank you 😁
Ava made the varsity hockey team for Paramus Catholic this past season. She played great and was one of the top players in points. We just found out that she made all league honorable mention in the Big North!
Ava will be attending Lawrence Academy. When we visited the campus about a year and a half ago, it’s the school that felt most tight knit, safe, hockey rink is great and the campus is beautiful!
Thank you for always having Ava’s best interests in the forefront and helping her with this long, stressful process. She is over the moon happy and excited, it’s a dream come true for her.
