Winter highlights

February 20, 2013 - Time seems to go by quicker now-a-days, have you noticed?

Just a few months ago we were prepping and getting the Winter Sports Section ready to hit the printer and now we are in playoffs.

Wrestling has already gone a few rounds in playoffs, winning a district championship and sending three, Chris Calvano, Adam Myers, and Nick Vandermeer, to the MHSAA Individual Finals next week. Skiers take to the snow one more time on Monday in their state finals as the boys team competes for a 2-peat state championship title.

Girls basketball finishes their regular season this week with a home game against Pontiac on Thursday. Then, start district playoffs next week the same time hockey starts their post-season.

Plus, boys basketball finish their regular season next week. And in a few short weeks, bowling and swim will be over.

Sometimes I like to ask what are your predictions as teams head into the post-season. But I know some are superstitious. It's alright. So, instead, I will ask what were some of the highlights for you so far this winter season - as a player, a parent, a fan, a member of the Jungle? Did you score your first goal in hockey? Hit a game-high in basketball? Take down a foe in wrestling?

Or maybe you're anxiously waiting to become or see your favorite person as Athlete of the Week. (I will give you a hint - send a nomination and we will take care of the rest.)

Share your highlight or nomination with us with an email at clarkstonnews@gmail.com, on Facebook - Clarkston News or on Twitter @CNewsWRSports.

Well, as all of you athletes prepare for the next round of playoffs or get ready for your first round of playoffs - we wish you good luck, and we can't wait to see what happens.

My personal highlight for the winter season was last week. A bag of cheesecake chocolate cupcakes landed on my desk on Valentine's Day. I looked at them and gave them away. Cheesecake and chocolate, what a perfect mix. One day, but it wasn't that day.
