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: Voters, especially seniors, should ask questions It’s that time of year again. Kids are getting ready for school, corporations are reviewing their semi annual reports and — yes — many seniors are filling out their absentee ballots. Some are voting because they are fed up with the status quo, some out of habit and some because they feel it is their civic duty.

  • Viewpoint: Adding such a robust water resource with Mounds Lake would set us apart I have lived in Madison County most of my life, and for the past 14 years, I served on the Town Council in Pendleton, recently retiring as president. I have watched with great interest the happenings around the proposed Mounds Mall for a few reasons.

  • Letter: Dr. David and Kay Mares are local treasures Throughout history we have had treasures that were not appreciated until years or centuries after their time. The lost art of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. The terra cotta men of China. Vincent Van Gogh was a failing, starving artist in his time. Now his works are some of the world’s most valued. Madison County has a prize of its own that should be recognized in its time.
