BUNCETON- The Bunceton Lady Dragons took on Kingsville Monday, Feb. 17, and came away with a big 56-32 win. Coach Dustin Ray reported that, “After a slow first half, we made a few adjustments and played extremely well. Cara Bishop did her thing on the defensive end of the court and shut Kingsville’s biggest threat down in the second half. Very good performance by her. Felt great to get back out and take a win after several days away from competition.” They did so well they held Kingsville scoreless in the third quarter while adding 15 to their first half score.

I must say we’re all looking forward to warmer weather so we can sit out on the front porch and visit. After being stuck inside throughout the winter months, it is only natural for us to want to get outside and breathe in the fresh air.
SYRACUSE- What a difference a day makes in central Missouri. The past week has brought us sunshine and warmer weather. I was wondering how you could plant potatoes on St. Patrick’s Day with ice and snow on the ground, but now it looks pretty good for St. Patrick’s Day. The kids headed off for New Orleans for a great time at Mardi Gras. Gage Claas is heading off to New York for a mission trip. Lexi Dickerson is playing softball all around the country for Columbia College and still winning. Myra Claas and the Tipton Lady Cardinals are continuing their winning season. Life is just pretty good now.
