Congratulation to the 17 who made it to State this year! It was a great weekend with lots of drama on the boys side., While we ended up losing by one single point, we should all hold our heads up very high. Keep in mind that we were projected to lose by 26 points if all went as seeded going in to the meet. That means that we far exceeded expectations. We had several events not go as planned, which is inevitable. With that said, we should not look at any one single event as being the cause of the shortfall. How we deal with disappointment and adversity speaks a lot about who we are. We certainly lost the close meet with dignity and class. We can be proud of who we are and how we represent Thunder Mountain.
Thanks to ALL of you who made it a very special and memorable weekend for me personally. I love you all and I shall never forget it... in a very positive way. -Coach May
