March Madnss on Oregon's south coast community of Coos Bay has begun! The Boys and Girls 3A Championship Basketball teams are here and my husband's team is privileged to be among them - the HORIZON CHRISTIAN HIGH SCHOOL HAWKS! The communities of Coos Bay and North Bend have embraced us with a hamburger BBQ for the players and a fresh seafood buffet for the coaches. Mel Counts, a professional basketball legend from this area spoke following the dinners and a 3-point shoot-out competition was held. The teams each presented 2 players to compete and who won? HORIZON for the boys teams - congrats to Michael Loomis with 19 put in the bucket within 1 minute and to Wyatt Houston who complimented it for a rousing score of 27 to win it all! Fun - fun-fun! Today we will play our first scheduled game against Valley Catholic High School. We are praying for focus and excellent game play for each team member as they use their skills to bring honor and glory to our great God in the name of His Son, Jesus.. Stay tuned for life BEHIND THE BENCH at the OREGON STATE 3a TOURNAMENT.
