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.
Cager Classic committee: Tracy Edwards, Ken Elliot, Bill Heasley, Kerry Kordes, Glenn Mills
TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
