Congratulations to the Paonia girls' basketball team for another very successful season. I know there is some disappointment over losing in the state tournament semi-finals, but this does not diminish their accomplishment.
Joe and I were able to watch about a dozen games and it was a delight to see this group of young women perform. Not only did they exhibit a high level of effort and skill, but they did it without losing the sense of enjoyment. Also, they always demonstrated a high level of respect for opposing teams and presented an air of gratitude that they have the privilege to be part of this team.
Though frustrated in their hope to gain the state title, there is consolation in knowing that most members will return next season for another try. Though they will certainly miss the contributions of seniors Jessica Altman and Alexandria Farnsworth, this team has much depth and will no doubt need to be reckoned with in Pueblo next March.
Finally, on behalf of Joe and me, I want to say thanks for all your work and the entertainment that you have provided. See you in December.
