Back from watching our granddaughter Bethany play in the state girls basketball tournament. The good news out of Minnesota is that the Hill Murray Pioneers finished their season with a 30-1 record. The bad news is that the “1” was in the final for the state championship, which they lost to another high school. I seem to be blocking its name for some reason. I do recall, however, that Bethany was named to the Minnesota All Stars first team and is a finalist for Miss Minnesota Basketball 2011 and will be playing for Iowa next year.
