Trojan Classic a class act in a class place


Yesterday I was talking to my husband Joe about the upcoming Trojan Classic. When he said, ?It looks like there?s a chance that we (Thomas More Prep) might be playing Hillsboro in the first round,? I asked him what kind of game he was anticipating. He said, ?Like always, a well-coached, disciplined, good team.?

My son Drew added, ?And it means a packed house.?

Every January we look forward to the Hillsboro tournament. We have come to expect and enjoy seeing great basketball, and we appreciate the hospitality of school officials and community patrons.

I would especially like to thank you for your kindness last January. If you recall, by the time the last game ended on Saturday, it had snowed at least 8 inches. As we were leaving for home, several community members helped us dig out our vehicles. Then, when we stopped for gas on the way out of town, we were visiting with another Hillsboro community member and her daughter (a Trojan basketball player). She told us that if we decided not to make the trip to Hays, we could stay at their house, and then she gave us her business card so that we would have her contact number.

Unfortunately, I have since thrown the business card away, but I still want to say thank you and let you know why we enjoy participating in your tournament and visiting your community.

You are a class act.

Cindy Hertel
