Letter: Frankton girls team having great year

I’ve been a fan of girls basketball for many years. I enjoy watching high school girls basketball and the education and skill level that these girls play with.

That brings me to the Lady Eagles of Frankton High School.

Coach Dean Riddle and his coaching staff work tirelessly bringing out the best in their players.

With a 13-4 record (as I write this letter) and four games left before sectional, their accomplishments have been tremendous with only two seniors and the rest of the girls underclass.

One girl on this team is Kelsey Key, a senior who leads the state of Indiana in scoring at 36.0 points average in the first 17 games.

Kelsey is a pleasure to watch play the game of basketball. I urge any state or county fan to go watch this team play.

I congratulate Coach Riddle and his staff for a job well done and know the coaches and girls will continue to play and coach hard the rest of this year.

To Kelsey Key, continue your great play the rest of your senior year. Any boy or girl would love to have the year you’re having to close out their high school careers.

Sports Department of The Herald Bulletin, Madison County has the state’s leading scorer in girls basketball at Frankton. Kelsey would be a great asset playing for the Indiana All Stars.

Good luck to all teams in the upcoming sectional.

  • Viewpoint: Pray for an end to abortion pandemic There are few, if any, conditions of our day that have more impact on our lives than the shameful practice of abortion – a legalized form of murder. There are many who say that should not be spoken in polite society. There are others who buy into the fabrication that since abortion is legal, it must be a non-issue.

    I will begin this correspondence by stating I have known hundreds of educators from across the state of Indiana. There are a couple of fibers that commonly run through the character of most of these great people, educators truly care about kids, and they do not fear a fair and equitable evaluation.

  • Viewpoint: Resources are available to prevent child abuse The word "courage" is often associated with the fight against child abuse. Front line victim advocates have long recognized the need for courage in order to protect victims. Behind the scene advocates need courage to fight for funding and attention to the cause.

  • Viewpoint: Tree City USA distinction laughable I thoroughly enjoyed your April Fools' editorial announcing that the city of Anderson had received the Tree City USA distinction. Had I not realized it was a joke, I would have choked on my coffee. I was a little concerned that you did not announce to some of the less enlightened readers that it was an April Fools' joke.
