S: California Girls.. We're Unforgettable!
FC: Best FRIENDS FOREVER | (No matter what state you're in) | Love Jaclyn, Jessica, Katie, Lauren, Maddi, Megan, & Paige
1: We were brought together to be a team, but we ended up becoming best friends. In just two short years you have made a lasting impact on each of our lives. Never forget your "California Family." We love you India!
2: Little Sister India, Who would’ve thought that after two short years of knowing each other I’d be calling you my little sister? When we first met you were just that tall girl from Arkansas who could seriously ball, but now you have become one of my best friends. Its amazing how much someone can mean to you even if you haven’t necessarily known them for too long. India, you mean the world to me. I truly consider you to be my younger sister. Our endless conversations about everything have taught me so much about life. Together, we’ve helped each other through some difficult times and I know that is what brought us much closer. Remember our 2-hour talk on the black top basketball courts in 100-degree weather?? You probably didn’t realize it then, but that meant so much to me. All of our conversations are special to me. I know at times things can get rough but just remember you will always have a support system in California that you can rely on. I am coming to visit you in Arkansas this year and that is not just some empty promise. Also, expect weekly phone calls and Skype sessions. My senior year won’t be the same without you, but anyone who is blessed enough to have a relationship with you should consider themselves lucky. “Because I knew you, I have been changed for the good..” I love you India and I’ll see you soon. Love Forever & Always, Big Sis Maddi Moo | India & Maddi

5: Inderz- I cannot even begin to describe how much I'm going to miss you. We've been through so many ups and downs together which have made us so close the past two years. I can easily call you one of my best friends because I can always count on you to listen to me or just talk with me. I can't believe you're going back to Arkansas, which, yes, has electricity. I know there is a very slim chance, but if at all possible, can you come back for senior year? It won't be the same without you. I think I'm going to add that to my Christmas List. I love you more than you can ever imagine and just know that I will be missing you every step of the way. Best of luck in Arkansas and I hope you come back to visit more than often. Love always, Lauren (Lil' Laurz) | & Lauren
6: India & Katie
7: Oh India Claire Wilson, I don't even know where to start. Freshman and sophomore year have been amazing together. You don't even understand how much I'm going to miss you. Like you’re my best friend and I just love you so much. Like there are just so many memories I can't even think right now, haha. Well it was quite wonderful being bus buddies on the way to all your games. All the intense talks and laughs we’ve had together are extensive. Honestly you're such an amazing person to be around. It feels like anytime I'm sad or down or whatever you're there cracking one of your kind of funny jokes but in the moment there just perfect because it made me smile. I mean all the sleepovers and hours on fb lurking people haha you know those certain 2 women...hahaha you know who I'm talking about girl. The amazing beach trip with p]Plasky, Jfuld, Megs, n Skylar was unforgettable. I think the funniest moment was when we stopped at Rubies during the playoff game...and the retarded bus boy just felt like dropping 7 cups of ice cold water on us...haha oh good times. You're the best friend anyone can ask for and I love you so much. It sucks you are leaving us and you better be visiting here a lot more often than you visited Arkansas while living here. Well I hope them Arkansasians appreciate you and I hope you won't be out there for too long.! Kay, well love you Inderz and I'm really happy I got the chance to get to know you and I know for a fact we're going to stay besties foo life< LOVE, Kitty Charles
8: India!! From the moment I met you, we became best friends. You have always been there for me through thick and thin. You have not only been a teammate to me, but also a best friend, a sister. We have shared so many laughs, tears, and memories, especially in Arizona. From being late to our meeting, our roomates, your text to Charles, coaches stories, the hot chocolate pranks and the monster in our room, we always shared laughs. That was seriously the longest eight hour car ride ever and we didn't steal the hot chocolate. You were always the one who I told my secrets too because i knew I can always count on you and express my feelings, good or bad. You were the one I looked up to, literally. I seriously do not no how I am going to survive next year without you. Basketball will not be the same next year, you were the one everyone counted on. How are we ever gonna win league? You are an amazing player and you will go to a great college one day. Even if I will try, I will never be able to find a friend like you. Your friendship is my treasure and even if I am away from you, I will always be in touch. You are my bestest friend in the whole wide world and I will always be there for you no matter what. Have fun in Arkansas and I know you will succeed in everything you do, from basketball to school. I love you and will miss you dearly. Love, Arine Costanian #23

10: India (Olgzz for good times sake), I will never forget that first time I saw you freshman year on the basketball courts. I thought, “who does this girl think she is?” Little did I know we would soon become the best of friends. A couple weeks later at your first practice, we had finally met on the sidelines during one of Goosen's typical practices. I used to think you were just a shy person, but you definitely are not now that I have gotten to know you. You are without a doubt the nicest, most generous, and kindest person I know and there is never a dull moment with you. Whether we are together in those long ass practices or chilling on the sidelines cause we messed up in the game, I always know you're going to be right by my side cheering me up if I'm in one of those moods. You are the only person I can yell at and still manage to be friends with them twenty minutes later when the game is over. We have this love/hate relationship that I don’t know what I am going to do without it next year, but I know we will still be friends through it all. This means I need to reactivate my skype just for you.! I will miss all the long carpool rides with you, Snookzz, and Courtney. We've shared so many memories in that car from getting lost, to just sleeping after a long day, and even pretending to sleep while Coach T gives us a pep talk. Also you still owe me a ride to Chick-fil-A, so when I come out to Arkansas we're going.! I'm going to miss you so much not only as a friend, but as a teammate. The new post has big shoes to fill (literally). I love you so much and next year won't be nearly the same without your amazing self there. I honestly couldn't ask for a better friend and love you so much and don't forget it!! Love always, JGoodzz

13: Inderzzz, I have been putting off writing this letter to you because it requires me to think about the fact that you are leaving. The very first thing I thought when I heard the news was that I wouldn't be able to hug my favorite person in the entire world everyday anymore. As you know, my love for you is unending and always will be no matter where you are. I will never forget the first day I met you and how unbelievably nice you were to us freshies. You are truly the nicest person I have ever met. After that, you became my best friend. Looking through pictures, I realized how thankful I am to have you in my life and how our times together were amazing. I always know I can come to you for ANYTHING and I love that we have the same opinion on most stupid high school stuff. Lol. I can't say enough how much I love and care for you. Now, at basketball, when a coach is yelling at me and I get upset I will remember you in my head saying “"You're fine Paige, don’t let it bother you." You always know the right thing to say and do to make all of us happy when we aren’t. As hard as it is to say goodbye, I’m so glad that you have people who love you as much as we do in Arkansas. I know they will take good care of you. I want you to know that we will be just fine here in California and you will be greatly missed. Yet, I know I will see you very soon after you leave and I’m hoping to visit you one day . Expect tons of phone calls from me after something happens in my life that I need to tell you, as usual. I know you will meet some genuine Arkansas boys, because you deserve someone to treat you well.! Can't wait to hear all about them.! Inderz, you will always be my Inderz and I wish you the best of luck in the next chapter of your life. No matter where you live, you will always be my best friend. I love you with all my heart. Xoxo Much love, Paigeypoo | India & Paige

15: THE JOURNEY HAS BEEN FUN... | "Friendship is one mind in two bodies." | INDIA!!! I just want to start off with saying I love you so much. I am so so so happy that I met you this year. You are one of the nicest people I have ever met in my life. You always know what the right thing to say to me or anyone else when they are sad or down in the dumps. Being around you is amazing and I know I can always be myself. I can always count on your jokes to make me laugh. I feel that I can tell you anything and I am confident you will always tell me the right thing to do. You taught me so much about basketball. You truly made me a better player. I remember the first day of summer camp last summer.. You were so nice and welcoming. I also remember you added me on facebook and wrote the nicest thing on my wall. I am going to miss you so much I cannot even explain it. Seeing you everyday always made me happy. Although it hurts me deeply to have you leave California, I know you are going back to friends that missed you as much as I’m going to miss you. I also know that you are going to meet new people, ( some sexy boys probs) and they are going to love you as much as I love you. I can promise you that I will visit you and we will talk everyday. So, I’m going to end this heart touching speech now (LOL) and wish you luck in whatever you do in life. I cannot explain how honored I feel to have met a person as sweet, caring, and compassionate as you. Remember, we AREN'T saying goodbye, we are saying see you later. I love you so much and I know we will keep in touch. Love always and forever, Jessica (Jay Money)

17: India, I am so sad and honestly never thought the day would come when you leave but it has. Words can't even describe what kind of friend you have been to me. Not even friend, but sister. I know it has been only two years together but I feel like I have known you for a life time. I can't imagine how I could have got through Calabasas without you. Every second saying where is India or I need to tell India something were non stop phrases in my vocabulary. At first you were this new girl from some random Midwest state but now you're my best friend who I hate to see leave back to.I don't even want to say the name lol. I mean I really think at one point we were literally living together. Playing with such an amazing basketball player like you has really been an honor and I know you will continue to grow and succeed where ever you play. The memories we have had together like sleepovers, team bonding, movie nights, camping, San Diego, travel ball, geometry class together, school lunches and support, games, adventures, long nights on Skype and the phone, and the list goes on. These make me tear up because I really can’t imagine the rest of high school not having you. And I may act tough or mean about you moving but it’s really because I don't want to think about my life right now without you. What we have, I have with no one else. You are so special to me and I really mean it. And I want you to always remember you are a beautiful person, just have confidence in yourself and you can win over anyone.! I really hope to visit you or have you visit us in California because there will be a hole in me after you leave so you need to help me fill it by visiting, texting, talking on the phone, and Skyping. You are my first really close friend that has moved away so this is really hard for me. No one, no matter what, could ever replace you wifey, babe, sugar muffin, and every other nickname on the planet I have for you. I'm still really hoping that somehow there is a way you could move back here because that would make my life way easier. One significant thing I have been dealing with is recovering from my acl tear and coming back to play but loosing you just tops that. Even though that is the most painful thing I have ever experienced, losing you is worse. And I really don't mean to make you sad but I just need you to know how much I love you and how much you mean to me. Well I’m tearing up and you're probably tearing up, well I hope you are, so I’m going to have to wrap this up. Even though I could go on and on about our friendship like I said before no paragraph could describe our relationship. It has literally been through everything. I hope we stay in touch and if we don't I know you will do good things in college and in life because you are a VERY sweet, kind, and friendly person that has a bright future. Keep working hard my love. LOVE ALWAYS, YOUR WIFEY FOR LYFEY, BEST FRIENDS FOR EVER AND BEYOND, #5 Megan Charles (megz)
