How can I describe the state tournament week for the SCHS basketball teams? Unbelievable! With so many enjoyable experiences occurring, I can only share my thanks to the sources of the entire experience.
As a coach I have been thoroughly blessed to enjoy so many special times with the young men on the SCHS basketball team, and I am sure Coach Smeenk feels the same emotions when working with the young ladies. Thank you, players, for your diligent effort and dedication for another fine season. Also, I want to thank my assistant coaches, Brian and Henry Bosma, for their dedication and commitment to excellence.
God is good! Without His constant care none of these accomplishments and memories would be possible. May we thank Him daily for the blessings He provides!
Fans, you were again wonderful. SCHS enjoyed great fan support all week in the SunDome, especially on Friday and Saturday evenings. What an encouragement for the players and coaches!
Cheer squad members, classmates, parents, season game workers-thank you for your commitment and dedication adding to the success of the team.
I also want to thank Joe and Kathy Mann, owners of Ron's Coin and Book in Yakima, who were our gracious and friendly hosts for the 1B Tournament. Their hospitality was exceptional.
Last, thanks to Robert Story for writing the detailed articles that captured the excitement of the games. Bob's attention to detail was greatly appreciated, and thanks to the photographers from the Daily Sun News for taking photos. We appreciate your positive support!
Once again, thank you to all who support Sunnyside Christian School. May God bless you as you continue your support of SCS athletics and Christian education.
/s/ Dean Wagenaar, Sunnyside Christian High School Boys Basketball Coach
