Today, I want to thank the Spring Grove girls basketball team for a great year and getting something done that has never been done before.

You girls are special; you did something that no other basketball team from Spring Grove has ever done!

When I was young and on the basketball team, our dream was to play at Williams Arena in the State Tournament. I am 62 and have never seen a Spring Grove team there. You did it!

You make all Grovers who played basketball proud. I know I am not alone, as one who shared that dream, because I have heard from people much older and younger that played the game they feel as I did.

Thanks for paving the road to the state. You all completed the dreams of many before you. Thank you from my whole heart.
