Thank you, South Medford Panthers, for a super season. The four of us were at Mac Court for the final three games of your title run.

We watched nine teams play. Ours had the best combination of athleticism, coaching, team play and sportsmanship.

The defense of Jon Grimes, Dylan Anderson and Mitch Singler was impressive. The rebounding and cool free-throw shooting of Van Dellenback-Ouellette was vital. E.J. Singler suddenly has emerged as a star.

The ballhandling and incredible outside shooting of injured Michael Harthun was the key to victory.

As for Kyle Singler, let's retire jersey number 33. Let future generations have a glimpse of the jersey that was worn by the man whose back carried us all to the top.

Thanks and congratulations, Panthers. You're the greatest. — Ron Smith, Medford
