To assume it won’t come to fruition this 12 months with a efficiency earlier than a packed auditorium of household and pals is heartbreaking; that these college students won’t expertise opening-night jitters; and that one other group of fogeys is not going to see their youngster singing and dancing with confidence is a tragic casualty of those unlucky occasions.
But after all, it has solely been postponed at this level. There should still be a possibility.
That is just not true for these basketball groups chasing a state title.
I spent a pair many years reporting on highschool athletes pursuing state championships. For the few that make it so far as regional play, it’s a uncommon and magical time for the gamers, the coaches, the followers and the varsity basically.
For it to be taken away by forces past their management can be heartbreaking.
Athletes are taught to complete the sport, to complete the season.
Not having the chance will follow them lots longer than any defeat.
It is just not truthful, however that could be some of the necessary classes from this—life is just not truthful.
Postponing the varsity play and canceling the state basketball tournaments are unlucky ramifications. It is just not the top of the world.
