Basketball players gave it their best

My wife, Ruth, and I have enjoyed the Dixon Dukes and Duchesses basketball games, win or lose. They all played the best basketball with the will to win.

We have a new Tara Michels in Brooke Bailey and her great teammates. Even the cheerleaders cheered them on. My wife was afraid they would be hurt once, they were so high up.

For the boys, they played the best for the Dukes with Cal Jarrett, Ikens, Carr and Thomas. They played their best, win or lose. They will be better next year.
