Finally, I want to thank the volunteers and parents who helped out with the huge undertaking of hosting the regional competition. Every coach I spoke with yesterday talked about how Bondurant did an outstanding job hosting the event, and I want to thank all of you personally. Our school was represented well and many across the region were impressed, and that is due entirely to our awesome group of parents, teachers, and staff members.
