Get Your Shine On

I chose the Florida Georgia Line song "Get Your Shine On" because it's the playoffs and, more than any other time of the year, that is the time to shine.

This past week I saw both the Bottineau-Rugby hockey team and the Bottineau Braves basketball seasons come to an end in the playoffs. I also witnessed a runner-up finish at districts from Westhope-Newburg's boys, a Bottineau Stars win and a pair of losses by Dakota College at Bottineau basketball teams.

Going to be a bit of a light week as I only have a few games to cover this week. I have a 19U hockey game on Saturday and a doubleheader of DCB basketball on Sunday. I also photographed last nights Bottineau Stars win, but those pics won't be up until next week.

I'm nearly done with the best (and worst) part of the year, then I can focus on March madness. This could be the year that I repeat my 2005 success (the only year that I did really, really well).

I have more than 30 pics to share this week:
