Heck passion, you and I both know we have gladly dished out the money. Have been some of the best memories in my feeble mind for many years. Sad tho that many don't get that "State" experience because their years of basketball end in places like, Stanwood, Mt Tahoma, etc., etc.
ps: WIAA really couldn't pay for 2 additional $45 plaques! That's just pathetic. 8 teams go and 6 trophy. Ridiculous! That's NOT "Just Playing Fair" Maybe they need to change their motto to: "Just Play Cheap"
