Meadow Hill’s stands and benches erupted in a roar, chanting Cora Moses’ name with four minutes left in the middle school basketball game.
Teammates and coaches say Moses is the backbone of support for their team, giving out high fives, smiles, and first bumps throughout the game. But Monday night was her time to have others do the same for her.
Moses jogged onto the hardwood as the Mustangs got the rebound, giving her the opportunity to score.
The eighth-grader went on to score not once, not twice, but three times in a play specifically designed for her — one of which was even a buzzer-beater — to get the win over Lolo.
The game, dedicated in her honor, was all organized by Moses’ coach, JJ Blood.
“I wanted to give her her own moment to shine and have everyone turn and focus on her,” said Blood. “All her peers were very accepting and all about it. Everyone was just so accepting to have her on the team. She’s just always smiling, always wants to dab you up and give you knuckles a lot, she’s just always happy. So we just wanted to celebrate that.”
