The season is over

There will be no gold ball this year. No championship rings. No banner to hang from the rafters. No net to cut. Our pictures won't appear in the program guide. We won't make the trip to the Big House. No, there will be no championship for the Lady Rams this year.

Basketball season is over for us. No more balls, no more whistles. It's done. over. There will be no more tennis shoes squeaking on the hardwood. There will be no more late night calls to the ClarionLedger. No more early morning practices. No more uniforms to wash and no more lost shooting shirts.

The girls won't run in late for practice and beg for leniency. There won't be any more coaches meetings.

The season is over.

track season begins

It seems that just as I begin to rest from a reeling basketball season, track is upon me. As exhausted as I am, I feel really excited about this year. The girls seem to be pretty fast although they are not very motivated at all. Still, as grueling as the practices have been not one has quit. There are more girls this year which came out for track than any other year which I have coached. I don't know exactly what this means, but it gives us a number of options which is nice. All in all, I'm pretty happy with the team so far.
