The Marble Champ
Lupe Medrano, a shy girl who spoke in whispers, was the school’s spelling bee champion, winner of the reading contest at the public library three summers in a row, blue ribbon awardee in the science fair, the top student at her piano recital, and the playground grand champion in chess.
“I’ll never be good at sports,” she fumed one rainy day as she lay on her bed gazing at the shelf her father had made to hold her awards. “I wish I could win something, anything, even marbles.”At the word “marbles,” she sat up. “That’s it. Maybe I could be good at playing marbles.”
Practice, practice, practice. Squeeze, squeeze, squeeze. Lupe got better and beat her brother and Alfonso, a neighbor kid who was supposed to be a champ.
The playground championship, the same one her brother had entered the previous year, was coming up.She signed up and was assigned her first match on baseball diamond number three.They proceeded to more matches and more wins.photographer took pictures of the two girls standing shoulder-to-shoulder, with Lupe holding the bigger trophy.
