Special Basketball Game Scheduled for Put-in-Bay School’s Senior Players

Max Leichner

Four great PiB School seniors had their last practice today and found out their last Put-in-Bay Basketball game is canceled. The 2013-2014 Panthers are 8-1, with six games canceled–three of which were home games.

Respect is not given, it is earned; and these four seniors earned it. They are the most hard working group of students I have ever seen. I had the honor of working with coach Schuffenecker and these great kids. If I had to use one word to describe this group of players, it would be dedication.  They come day in and day out giving it their all.

I am asking you, to come and cheer on “The Panthers” vs “Zach and Friends” tomorrow in the school gym at 10:30 am.  Give these seniors and their team the respect they have earned. This will be the last time you can see Arthur Wolf, Cody Porche, Maddy Pugh, and Casey Ladd in Royal and White.
