Good outcome, SHG's roundballers beat a more-or-less favored Bloomington team by three in overtime.
Ring ceremony was nice - the new wall banner was unfurled to take it's place on the honor wall alongside the other state championships and awards that the Cyclones and Blazers have won down the decades. We need a lot more wall than the pretenders down route 4.
Ron Sanders was there selling the 2005 game DVDs he's worked so hard on. I bought one more than I had intended - just couldn't resist owning my own copy of Dapper Danny Rourke generously showing the deputy the way to the Lanphier locker rooms.
What I'd love to have shown the dear folk from Cheatham and Trailerville was one part of the ring ceremony. Only the dozen or so seniors were handed theirs' individually. Afterward, Coach Leonard asked the sophomores and freshmen to step forward and a couple of dozen boys stepped forward. Then he called for the juniors - and a whole lot more stepped up. This year's rings were very nice - maybe next year's will be as good. 2006 will be a long season for the rest of the CS8.

There were indeed a lot of juniors and some of them should be little bigger by September. It's hard to win a state championship and it's even harder to win back to back. Sometimes a team is a little less hungry once they've reached the top and this team will have a big target on it's back from day one this time around.
The part about being less hungry in 06' will not be problem. The guys realize that they have a real opportunity here and they have a great desire to successfully defend their title. If we don't have bad luck with injuries in 06' I think that we'll be a handful for anyone in 5A.
Also when Bobby B winged that length of the floor pass to Reavy for a layup I thought to myself.. the arm looks fine and will crank out another 3000 yards this season.

Lord, but that was beautiful! Standing on one foot, right hand oustretched beyond the baseline, and there was Number 9 (ok, 11) streaking down the sidelines wide open. Touchdown!
Even in another sport, the Cyclone beat goes on.

Is this going to be the new standard Chatham reply now that you cant fall back on being the only team to win a state championship? Just let me know now so I can skip over all of the posts by Chatham fans during game week next year.
I will take 1 state championship and 4 2nd place trophies, over 1 state championship a few other playoff APPEARANCES. Get a clue.

They did have a championship - once- in the Cyclones' down year. It's getting more than a bit tarnished by now. What they DON'T have are all of the State seconds, semifinals, quarterfinals, and the like that show up on SHGs honor wall.
Oh, yeah, and after next year they won't even have the conference career passing record anymore. Along about the time they get whomped by the Cyclones, Bobby B will blow Juergens' record into past with their other sole football accomplishment.
Don't pay too much attention to the yappy little guys - they're all bark and very little bite.

All... Kind of a strange post from someone that graduated from Southeast, moved to Chatham and declared "all of us down here are not snooty." I guess this individual has joined the club... Ratsy

What you're missing is that there's a significant difference between their milk jugs and ours.
Ours don't get put away after the first playoff game. Also, ours don't have a disturbing tendency to fall silent when we're playing THEM.
