Sydney Hartgrove a Team Leader For Topsail Lady Pirate Softball And Basketball Programs
In life as well as in sports you will face Adversity as a individual and as team. When speaking of Adversity, your strength is determined not by the Adversity itself, but by how you handle it as a individual or as a team. In our area we have had our share of adversity in the community as well as in athletics over the last two years. When Adversity strikes on the field or court you need a team leader. Topsail Junior Sydney Hartgrove, standout softball and basketball player for the Lady Pirates is a leader for both teams. Sydney leads by example.
