Shalee Lehning writes a new blog entry for her hometown paper. Lehning worked with the Power of Girls mentorning program and she got a chance to go bowling:
"We were separated into teams and we competed against each other. As you can imagine it got pretty competitive. Before I tell you who won, let me explain what the atmosphere was like. The place we bowled at was called 300 Atlanta. It was the coolest bowling alley I’ve ever been too!"
"To top it off, my team won! I was with Tamera Young from the Dream and then we were with a few people that work for the Dream and a girl from the mentoring program. It was total domination so that made the night even more enjoyable. Not to mention the bragging rights that Tamera and I have now."
She also mentions an interview with the website HollywoodJesus.com, a pop culture/spirituality website where she talks about her Christian faith. But the interview reveals more than just her faith journey:
"Her contributions on the court are starting to pay off as she adjusts to the speed of the game and continues to get better. Currently, she’s second on the team in assists (2.2 per game). As a point guard, Lehning told me that she models her game after Steve Nash of the Phoenix Suns. She’s watched hours of film on him, noting that his style is to pass first, shoot second, and keep defenses honest. In addition, he’s found ways to make defenses better, sacrificing his own game in the process."
