To be a Delta High School Panther has always been something to be proud of, but recent accomplishments of the sports teams make it even more pronounced. The football program has been doing so amazing in the last few years, and now both basketball programs add to the excitement. I am sure the community and alumni have enjoyed watching and reading about the recent success. I wanted to recognize the coaching staffs and their families for all the hard work and dedication that goes into this recent success. It takes special people and a good program to produce what we get to watch on the field or on the hardwood.
It is a source of tremendous pride for all of us ex-players to see the programs achieve such high goals and accomplishments. I can only speak for myself, but watching the basketball teams cut down the nets for the first time in school history made me feel like I was doing it right there with them. I looked around the gym and saw many familiar faces that had to be feeling the same abundant pride that I felt. To be a Panther, whether an athlete or not, is a big responsibility. We should all hold our heads a little higher and be proud of where we come from, because it is the star of the golden west. GO BIG GREEN.
