Letter from a loyal Wildcat

March 18, 2020 6:38 AM

It’s not my habit to write letters to the editor but I feel compelled to let my feelings be known. I am referring to the Northwest divisional basketball tournament in Ronan recently. I feel it was well organized with a great display of good sportsmanship. I too share the disappointment of our coaches, fans and the players involved over being eliminated from state in Billings. I know that both the boys and girls gave it all their best. Being eliminated doesn’t change my feelings of my love and pride towards our athletes and the coaching staff. Just because the scoreboard doesn’t show it, you are and always will be winners in my book and have my total support. I am not only proud of all our ballplayers but the cheerleaders too. Their performance during half time had to be the best ever and one of my highlights of the event. I can only imagine the amount of work that goes into their performance. Losing and winning are part of life’s lessons and you have every right to be proud. Like they always say, “Wait until next year.”

Blood runs blue.
