  1. Just wanted to wish both the boys’ and girls’ teams the best of luck this weekend. I have been avid (but silent) supporter of the girls’ basketball program since the early 1990s and all of their terrific runs at the State Championships. Hopefully we will see both of your teams at the respective venues for the weekend of March 14 – 16. Good luck, ladies and gentlemen.
