a winning kick and a crown

From the New York Times, something to make us all smile.  I've written about princesses and keep getting more hits from one of the princess pictures than anything else, so perhaps it's high time I post something about a queen. Homecoming queen, that is.  But that's the least of her accomplishments - 4.0 student, student government treasurer, soccer player and now, first girl on the football team.  I wonder what she'll do as an adult! 

winning kicker and homecoming queen, all in one

From the article:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — In his 18 years at Pinckney Community High School, Jim Darga, the principal, said, the homecoming queen had always been crowned at halftime of the school’s football game. Never before, though, had she had to be summoned from the team’s locker room.

And that was just the beginning of Brianna Amat’s big night.

If being named homecoming queen is a lifetime memory for a high school student, so, too, is kicking a winning field goal. For Amat, 18, they happened within an hour of each other.
