Roll On

The song I chose this week is "Roll On" by Alabama. Both the Braves and the Sioux rolled on through the District 11 tournament and advanced to the Region 6 tournament in boy's basketball.

It was a busy one, this week, as I covered three days of district basketball, two DCB hockey games, a big game between BHS hockey and Bismarck Century, BHS girls basketball and a doubleheader of college basketball.

I'm looking forward to what should be a rousing hockey game between rivals tonight as the Jacks will play the Beavers and then this weekend I am going to Bismarck to cover the West Region hockey tournament. I will get to see some relatives and stay down with some of my extended family in Hazen, N.D.

With all the craziness of jumping back and forth between several games this past week also came a lot of good pictures that I can share this week. Here they are:
