Sept. 23, 2019 — More than just courageous

In the first year of this site, I wrote about a field hockey player named Robyn Kratenstein, who played for Gaithersburg Quince Orchard (Md.) despite being born without a left hand. She’s now a medical doctor.

Yesterday, the St. Louis Post Dispatch wrote about a field hockey player from Ballwin Parkway West (Mo.), who similarly plays for the field hockey team despite being born without a left hand. You get the same feeling that the same kind of boundless future will await her after reading the story.
