The Cager Classic committee would like to thank the Valley News Dispatch for its excellent coverage of this year's Cager Classic skills competition and games.
In 17 years of competition involving 20 local schools, we have tried to provide senior boy and girl athletes one last chance to demonstrate their talents for what will be, for many, their last organized game. While some will play in college, many will not.
We especially thank Bill Beckner Jr. for his excellent pregame coverage and insights on the skills competition and games. The information he detailed about many of the participants was outstanding.
Beckner's articles along with those by George Guido, provided an excellent summary of the Classic's events. We appreciate the time and effort they gave to make this special for the participants.
The VND has covered the Cager Classic for each of our 17 years.. We hope the stories keep coming, as we are already preparing for the 18th Classic.
Set your calendars for March 21, 2014, for more of the excitement of high school basketball.
