I read with great interest the letters to the editor written by David Kuta, Ryan Crick and Coach Rob Ames. Their articles provided a walk down the memory lane of Delta High School sports. I would like to add some additional significant sporting events not mentioned. A Delta basketball team won the state championship in 1945. I graduated with the class of 1961, and I'm proud to say I'm a Panther forever. We won the first ever state championship in football beating Cañon City 15-8. Later in the year, we lost the state basketball championship to Lamar 65-61 after leading them 42-22 at halftime. I still have nightmares and I'm 76 years old! As I previously stated, I'm a proud Panther and I thank these gentlemen for bringing me up-to-date and reminding me why I'm a proud Panther.
