Spring Branch-Memorial Sports Association (SBMSA) Angels
The Spring Branch-Memorial Sports Association (SBMSA) Angels (pictured) are off to a strong start this season. The team is in the senior girls division, aimed at developing skills for playing in high school. Head coach Michael Monk has coached his daughter’s team for the past 7 years, and each year the Angels don the same lime green uniforms. Many of the girls have played on the team for several years, and the coaches love to watch their growth and development over the seasons. The Angels are (top row, from left) head coach Michael Monk, Hannah Schissler, Bella Carrabba, Kate Chandler, Connally Thielhorn, Nikki Zonneveld, Meg Butterfield, Margaret Cannon, Grace Smith, assistant coach Aaron Thielhorn, (bottom row, from left) Bonnie Jurado, Callie Hall, Sarai San Lucas, Sara Monk, Cate Thielhorn and Gannon Turner.
