“Congratulations to the undefeated Menominee Maroon girls basketball team. There is too much negativity in the world today and to watch a basketball team play with such positive togetherness is refreshing.

“Their undefeated record (so far) reflects the togetherness of the whole team, not only the starters but the substitutes as well. I’ve not seen a better Menominee girls team play defense the way these girls do, which translates to offensive points many times.

“The old saying, ‘defense wins championships,’ holds true with these gals. Congrats to coach Chouinard and the entire team (even Bobby Anderson) for such an enjoyable season and good luck on the tournament trail.”
