It's been quite a season on the hardwood

February 29, 2012

With only a hand full of the county teams still alive in the basketball playoffs, I thought it would be neat to reflect on this season.

Benny Torpe, the Danish exchange student, was a force, but if she wants to play at a higher level she needs to have more than a left-handed drive to the bucket.
I was impressed with the Pansy Kidd Middle School eighth-grade Raiders and Lady Raiders basketball team.
