To the editor:
Coach Westby, first, congratulations on a great season of basketball. You deserved to be state champions. I watched the game and as a former BB official of 12 years, very bad and inconsistent officiating was a determining factor, especially in the final minutes and overtimes, of your loss. It is unfair to the young women and to you.
More importantly, the way in which you handled the situation was stellar and above reproach. What a great example for your team, your school, community and all of us. You kept your cool!!! Great mentoring for all of us.
Again, my sincere congratulations to you and the entire team. You are the best.
