The basketball team from my hometown of Crothersville competed in the boys sectional contest last night — just as they have since 1914. The Crothersville Tigers had never won… and they still haven’t. They remain one of only two teams in the state of Indiana that have never taken home the title.
The Tigers lost by 12 to the West Washington Senators and were runners-up once again. This loss was especially difficult since they beat the Senators by double digits in regular season play. Defeat is never easy — and losing doesn’t get easier no matter how many times you experience it.
I may live in Seymour and root for the Owls in sporting events, but I’m still a Tiger at heart. Here’s looking forward to next year!
And here’s looking forward to spring, too! How about this for a view in early March?
