To the Times of Ti:
Recently our daughter (Jordan McKee) set a record and tied another in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference bowling. We just wanted to take a minute to express our appreciation to everyone who has supported her.
The response from other bowlers, coaches, parents and her teachers has been heartwarming. We are pretty sure that every coach in the section has gone out of their way to congratulate her, whether it be a high five, a hug or a handshake. Shortly after she set the record, an opposing team presented her with a certificate signed by the whole team and coach; this is the same team that sang “Happy Birthday” to her when she bowled at their lanes on her birthday. Another team gave her a necklace at sectionals this past Saturday — talk about sportsmanship!
Jordan has made so many friends through this sport over the years, some who have graduated and moved on that she misses and some that she still gets to spend some time with now and then.
Special thanks to her teammates, North Bowl Lanes for the tribute on their monitors, Adirondack Lanes for the banner and many other things, Coach (Shannon) Huntington for understanding the need to take a short break from pitching, her bowling coaches, Donna Fleury and Rick Liddell and to Don Gijanto for keeping her ball tuned up and ready to go! Donna and Don are her biggest supporters, besides us, of course! Also congratulations to Donna for winning Coach of the Year!
