This is awesome!  Congratulations!  You're going to have a great season, I just know it.  It's good that your coach knows about your condition.
I remember playing b-ball when I was in highschool.  It was amazing.  I was a left guard.  I'm right handed, but when I'm dribbling or shooting, I become a left hander!  Weird eh. 
Good luck this season, glad you told us you made it!!

You go girl! I played in jr. high! They forced me because they needed one more person on the team. I made points for the opposite team and they fired me! :0) Hope you have an awesome season! Judy
