Super Fan!

Randy Bocksnick, my Dad...Columbia falls "superfan" of the last 40+ years. I like this picture of him. This was a night he was honored by Coach Findberg. He was allowed to sit on the bench during a game against Whitefish. This is pretty unusual but certainly a special thing for my dad. Thanks Cary for making this dream come true for my dad. This was especially "cool" considering I had just refereed for Cary the night before and had to call a technical foul on him:) By the way, most photos in this blog were taken by my dad...the good ones anyway!

Last weekend we wrapped up our basketball season for this school year. We played in a very competitive tournament in Spokane. We went 3-2 which was the same record as the champion...whom we beat by one on Saturday. The week before we went 4-0at Glacier, 3-1 at Missoula and 4-0 at Anaconda the week before. Yes...we're tired! Over all, including the school season which started in September, our girls are 49-9!

What a commitment by a special group of 8th graders. We wowed 'em with our ability to execute our offense and shoot the ball.

A few highlights:

Thirteen (13) three pointers vs Columbia Falls. 30 and 42 second half points vs Montana Hoops and Great Falls Amigos. Over-time victory vs Missoula Wolfpack. Only losing by 14 to the Tri-cities Warriors in the championship game at Moses Lake. Undefeated in three games against the best in Billings. Taylor's superior play including 33 points vs Spokane. Bre's 22 and 10 vs Butte in our last game. Jaylee's 2threes late against Great Falls and several game clinching free throws. Kali's half court three vs Montana Hoops and two threes vs Billings. Ellie's six points and great screens in Spokane. Mckayl's big threes vs Spokane and several key rebounds. Shay's charges. Emarie's lay ups in Memphis. Holli's rebounds and post steals. A ton of highlights! Thank you ladies for a very special basketball season...I was truly blessed by all of you this winter.

Now the tough part...get better! Commit to putting the time in to become great. Get in the gym. Shoot and ball handle. Get in the weight room. Improve as an athlete. Challenge and encourage each other. Have fun reaching for greatness!

I love you girls. Our time together this season will always be very special to me. Now it's time to see what you can do at the high school level.

We are...the Broncs!
