Going for Team A

Going for Team A

Lucia:              Coach O’Brian, can I talk to you for a minute?

Mr O’Brian:    Sure, Lucia. What’s the matter?

Lucia:               I want to be in the girls’ basketball team next year. What do I have to do?

Mr O’Brian:    Well, you have to pass the test in October.

Lucia:              I know. What do I have to do to pass the test?

Mr O’Brian:     You have to train hard. Did you play basketball before?

Lucia:              Yes, I always play with my four cousins. They’re all better than me, so I play with them to get better.

Mr O’Brian:     That’s great, Lucia. I have three teams: A, B and C. You have to start from Team C. You have to show that you’re a good player. Then I can choose you for Team B.

Lucia:              Do I have to be the best player in Team B too?

Mr O’Brian:     Yes. Only the best players of Team B can go to Team A. Team A is the girls’ basketball team. Do you think you can do it?

Lucia:              Oh, of course I can. Where do I have to start?

Mr O’Brian:    Great! Let me introduce you to Team C.
