SAN DIEGO- For the first time ever, three basketball-loving sisters took the court at the Mission Valley YMCA to play basketball.
San Diego-based attorney Melody Anderson, 58, plays for the Senior Women's Basketball Association and organized a game of three-on-three with her sisters, 74-year-old Margaret Mauzy, who flew in from Indiana, and 76-year-old Naoma Clark, who lives in Tennessee. All three share a love of hoops.
Clark served two years as head basketball coach at Petersburg Elementary School in The Dalles, Oregon.
Mauzy was inducted into the Grace College Sports Hall of Fame in 2012 for lifelong contributions to women’s athletics, including basketball.
Anderson played for Wheaton College, Westmont College, and internationally with Sports Evangelism. In 1979, she was drafted by the Dallas Diamonds of the WBL, the original professional women’s basketball association.
The three sisters wanted to make a memory with middle sister Mauzy, who is currently battling Stage IV Breast Cancer. To support their cause, donate to the Indiana University Simon Cancer Research fund.
