This is a golf column, but I would be remiss if I failed to congratulate the newly crowned Class 3A state champion Hitchcock Bulldogs.

My memories of Bulldog basketball include a time in the early 1960s when a tall skinny kid named Jerry became the first to dunk during a home game. I recall the excitement when a team advanced all the way to regional competition. I was not on that team, but I did wear the red and white on a couple of varsity squads, mostly getting into games when I could do no harm to the outcomes.
