“The ticketholder seated in Row D, Seat 12 will compete in tonight’s Walker High Halftime Free Throw Giveaway!”
Valerie approached a referee. She couldn’t sit in that seat, but she’d bought that ticket.
The ref studied her ticket.
“We have our contestant. Let’s give her a big hand!”
Valerie positioned her wheelchair behind the free throw line.
“Two shots,” the referee said, handing her a ball. “Good luck.”
Valerie studied the hoop. Raising her arms, she launched the ball.
It sailed through the basket.
Gasps echoed through the gymnasium. Cheers followed.
Valerie smiled. Just like wheelchair basketball…maybe easier. No opponents here.
