The third annual game between the Coleville High School boys' basketball team and members of the Mono County Sheriff's Department is this Saturday at the school gym. Game time is 6 p.m., with the doors opening at 5 p.m. Admission is $5 with kids younger than 10 admitted at no charge. The admission fee will also get you a free tri-tip sandwich and beverage. Those under 10 years old will have free chicken tenders to munch on. Referees for the game are Superintendent of Schools Don Clark and Principal Jason Reid.
Spring sports are starting
The first practice for the school's baseball and softball teams was Feb. 23 with their first games on March 7 and 8 at the Yerington tournament. No game times for the tournament have been given yet.
This year, for the first time, our valley will have a Little League team for 8 to 11 year-olds, as a part of the Carson Valley Little League. We wish them a lot of fun and success.
Great job, Amara
Coleville High's Amara Rowley was recently named to the girls' 1A Northern basketball all-league team. She did such a super job all year for our school's team, and she can be very proud of her latest honor, as we are.
Beta Sigma Phi dinner
Remember to mark your calendars for the delicious corned beef and cabbage dinner and wonderful homemade desserts March 15 at the Walker Community Center, from 5-7 p.m. Admission is $10, with the cost for those younger than 10 years old being $6. A no-host bar will be sponsored by the Antelope Valley Lions Club, and there will be many prizes to be won, including a $500 Visa gift card. This is always such an enjoyable way to spend an evening with many of our friends.
Due to not feeling real perky, I didn't get to attend their first function, but the reports I've heard were that the evening was a success. It was a shame to have the snow decide to dump on us at just about that time, but a lot of people still turned out to support the color guard and enjoy the music of Buffalo Country. It was really appreciated.
Fish are waiting
The Topaz fishing derby is still going on, so if we get the nice break in the weather that has been forecast, it would be a lot of fun to try to catch one of their tagged fish for a cash prize. The only thing worse for me that day than not catching a fish would be to catch a bigger one than Mike caught.
