DD didn’t have the dual stamp, she went from the grey ghost straight to the advanced.
It was good to her, hit it in practice all winter (started using it some time in February) and all summer in tb and practice. It had some suspicious cracks on it that honestly could have been paint cracks...

I tried hard to treat her the same as other players.
Not only to be fair to her, but ALSO because there are some really subtle messages that are sent when...
Makes perfect sense now- my post about not particularly wanting to spend every moment with the parents of a 10u team..... and preferring to do our praying at home or in a church of our choosing.... I totally see the connection now. To Marxism and Stalin’s purge. It’s so obvious! Thanks!
