Another Early Start
We left our hotel at 6:45 a.m. and took a two-hour bus ride to Morrison Academy in Taichung. Morrison Academy is a K-12 Christian school that has a really great facility. We showed up just in time to lead their middle school chapel. We showed part of our basketball video and then I gave a short talk about Multnomah's programs. Matt Campbell gave his testimony and then Coach Bickley interviewed Nick Kaamalade about campus life.
Talkin' 'Bout MBC
After chapel, I headed to their High School Counseling Center to meet with high school juniors and seniors. I was able to speak with them during their lunch break and tell them about what Multnomah has to offer. The basketball and volleyball teams had a chance to take a break and even swim in their pool.
Sports Clinics And Kids
In the afternoon, we led a simultaneous basketball clinic and volleyball clinic. It was PACKED! We had 27 students show up for the volleyball clinic and 68 students for the basketball clinic. Trying to manage that many young kids is like trying to herd cats. But we had a blast and the kids had a ton of fun. Our students did a great job working with the kids and were exhausted by the end of the clinic.
Fortunately for me, I didn't have to play a basketball game after the clinic. Unfortunately for our guys, they had to play a game against Morrison's High School varsity team. Despite a long day, the guys played great! Our Lion's beat their Mustangs 100-60 with their outstanding three-point shooting.
We took a two hour bus ride home with a quick stop at McDonald's. Ah...the comfort of familiar food.
