Thanks for the tournament these past years. Glad to hear the anthem played at the games, not just played but SUNG! In these times I hope we all appreciate the freedoms that we are given.
I like the new seating arrangements. Safer for the players and a bit more relaxing not having to be so on guard for me and my family from flying balls and players. Aesthetically I’ve always thought your court has a nice visual appeal.
Only down I guess I could say is with my son getting the #2 maybe there could be certificates for the top five players, not just the MVP trophy for the #1. Being a bench player until his senior year I know he would have been grateful to have something to go with his memories.
Lastly I think it is always good to remember that the games, like everything else in life should be done to bring honor to God. Your school always reminds the players and fans of that point and I hope that continues well into the future.
Thank you for these tournaments and God bless!
