Fabulous game last night between the Eastside and Pinewood girls basketball teams. Both teams played extremely hard, and although playing catch-up for much of the game, Eastside showed a lot of grit and determination in coming back and eventually winning in overtime. The game exemplified the best in high school sports: spirited play by true athlete-scholars with supportive but very appropriate cheering sections. The only negative was the injury to Leanne Martin who hopefully will recover in time to help her team in the playoffs.

I went to the game to see this amazing matchup of two of the best girls teams (of any school size) in the region -- and it lived up to the promise. The 3-pointer Ahjalee swished to tie it as regulation time expired, with defenders draped all over her, may have been the most unlikely and unbelievable shot I've ever seen in a basketball game, at any level. As the shot went through, the (home) crowd in the stands exploded and the buzzer sounded -- a memorable sight. Agree with the above poster: the players and fans (and game) represented the best in high school athletics.
