To the editor:

The young men of the Clay City varsity basketball team: Your furious comeback in the fourth quarter of the March 15 regional championship game deserves high praise. You produced for yourselves the opportunity to win. Nothing more could have been asked of you.

To the young men of Greenwood Christian Academy: Your stalwart efforts throughout all four quarters of the game were recognized by all in attendance. You also produced for yourselves the opportunity to win the game. Nothing more could have been asked of you, either.

To the officials calling the game: Your efforts and judgment throughout the game were questionable at best. Both teams were affected by no-calls, mysterious shooting fouls, bench timeouts awarded when there was no offensive control of the basketball and finally, a whistle with eight-tenths of a second remaining for a loose ball foul, with at least six players battling for the rebound.
