To Calais Blue Devils girls and boys basketball teams, you all have done a great job in going as far as you have in winning spots in exciting games. I hope all teams are using hometown talent and not importing players as some have done in the past to keep basketball exciting as it is for proud parents and fans. Certain players stand out for their individual work, but is accomplished by a hard-working team. Being a volunteer cross guard for four years, some have passed on my way in the crosswalk that I cover and have had many boys and girls in this spot daily that play teams present and past. I hope I am around a few more years to have the opportunity to see many more. Great work, kids, coaches, parents and loyal fans. You have given us exciting moments.
