Opinion


The Purple and Gold made us proud

As the time ticked away on the scoreboards in Syracuse this past weekend, it became more and more obvious that Richfield Springs would not claim a Section III Class D championship, first Saturday in the girls game, then Sunday in the boys game.

This small little village may not have a Class D title, but what it does have is two basketball teams of which it is very proud.

Winning teams are far and few between in Richfield, but these young men and women gave this community something to talk about this winter.

With every win achieved on the court, it made it a little easier for us to deal with the winter blues. It gave us something to talk about and something to cheer for.

People who hadnít been to a basketball game in years came out to support their Indians. They were the talk of the town. Purple and gold were everywhere.

You won and lost with dignity. You played with the heart and determination of champions.

No, you canít call yourselves Class D champs.

But you can call yourselves the darlings of this community.
