The Power of One

“The 2008 state champion, with a total of 42 points, now approaching the award stand,” proclaims the announcer. “The Lady Hornets of Rochelle High School consists of a total of one individual.” There’s no crowd roar. There’s no crowd left. The presenter hands her the team trophy.”
