We pray that we were a blessing to them as well; they will be missed,” Ben’s Ford Christian School coach Mark McGehee said. “Sylvia Rosa has been playing ball for the Lady Eagles since the seventh grade. Sylvia has been a vital part of the team, and I hate to see her go. I am looking forward to seeing her succeed in all her endeavours. Sylvia will be missed and she will be an Eagle forever.
