Riding the Storm Out

This week the song I've chosen is "Riding the Storm Out" by REO Speedwagon. I chose this because I felt like I was hit by a storm of sports stories this past week as I was here, there and everywhere for sports coverage. Now, I'm riding the final waves of the storm until the winter season finishes.

This past week I traveled to Minot twice for Region 6 boy's basketball. The Braves were runners-up in the region. I also traveled to Velva on Friday for the District 11 tournament. Saturday morning I headed north to the Bottineau Winter Park to cover the ski team's only home race. However, I only had to cross town to cover 19U hockey on Sunday.

None the less it was a busy week, but the storm is nearly ended, the worst weeks are behind as far as being busy goes.

Congratulations are in order for the Ladyjacks basketball team who captured the Region XIII title for the third time ever this past weekend. Good luck this weekend.

A personal picture record was broken for this blog this week as I have 41 photos to share. Here they are:
