The high school basketball season has ended and congratulations go to the Greensburg Pirates who won the state Class 3A championship.
However, let’s not overlook the accomplishments of our Batesville Bulldogs. They completed their season with only three losses and two of those were to the state champions. In addition, Batesville was victorious in one of their three games versus the eventual state champions. That is a very enviable record.
No, we did not get out of the sectional because we were defeated by the Pirates on their way to the state title. Our young men did themselves proud and they are to be congratulated. Aaron Garrett and his coaching staff are also to be congratulated. They worked long hard hours to bring our team to this level of expertise.
Congratulations to the Batesville Bulldogs basketball team, the coaches, and the parents for a job well done.
Char and Jim Dreyer,
