Letter: Pioneer coverage lacked for Cass Lake-Bena at state

Congratulations to Coach Ninham and the boys of the Cass Lake-Bena boy's basketball team. I wish I had followed them more closely throughout the season because I definitely missed out.

Congratulations to Coach Ninham and the boys of the Cass Lake-Bena boy's basketball team. I wish I had followed them more closely throughout the season because I definitely missed out.

The Cass Lake Times did an excellent job in their paper covering the game last Saturday with several articles and pictures. I was not surprised to see black-and-white photos as they are a smaller business, etc., but I was very surprised that the Pioneer didn't give them better coverage and at least a large colored picture of the team with their smiling faces and hard-earned trophy to show how proud we are of their hard work and sportsmanship.

We watched that game and saw much more than a basketball game. We saw several young men working together as a team and conducting themselves with respect for themselves, their coaches and the opposing team. We applaud the referees for allowing them to "play ball." It was a fantastic game; the best game we have watched in many years. They may have taken second place but they were all first-place young men. Great game and good luck to each one of you!
