Tonawanda News — The Lady Blue Devils storm onto the court for their warm up session that, with their background music blasting, instantly grabs the attention of every child.

The day includes a session where each player introduces herself and informs the Hoover students of what elementary school she attended. After a skills demonstration of passing and shooting, the Blue Devils hand-pick kids from the crowd, bring them on the court and show them how to play.

“I love it,” Senior co-captain Marylouise Lindner said. “The kids are just so cute and they get so excited when we come.”

Lindner, who has been on varsity for three seasons, said that this trip is one of the highlights of the year and something the players look forward to.

“It’s something different through the four months of the basketball season,” Lindner said. “It gets our spirits back up and we get excited about it.”
