Quote of the Day
“The difference in men is in energy, in singleness in purpose and invincible determination. But the great difference between sacrifice, in self-denial, in fearlessness and humility and love, loyalty and the perfectly disciplined will. This is not only the difference between men, but this is the difference between great men and little men.” ---Vince Lombardi

Wedgewood Park Elementary
1st Year High Performance TEAM Participant
You can never discount the importance of
Brothers and sisters forever
linked by chance, friends by choice.
All one has to do is spend a few minutes
with Lailah and Ahmad Young and it becomes apparent that these two siblings are
the best of friends and that they share a special bond. This past summer,
Lailah and Ahmad biked to Merrill Park every morning to participate in MTEF’s
first-ever High Performance TEAM Academy.
Ahmad, 12, is a natural athlete who
excels in basketball and baseball. He had never played tennis until he watched
his younger sister, Lailah compete in Jr. Team tennis at Moorland Park Indoor
Tennis Club last spring. Lailah, 10, was a first-year standout in MTEF’s High
Performance TEAM program. She had just taken up tennis the previous summer and
her Merrill Park coaches noticed her athletic ability almost immediately.
