Macy Williams knows exactly when her competitive fire was lit.
The Fremont-Mills graduate was a laid-back second grader playing in an Optimist basketball tournament. Her team, used to winning the tournament year in and year out, finished a disappointing third place.
“I played so bad,” Macy said. “I cried all day.”
And that’s when her mother, Jennifer, stepped in.
“You can’t win everything so there’s two things you can do: quit or decide to get better,” Macy said her mother told her.
