On January 18, 2020, our annual school basketball and volleyball tournament got canceled for the second year in a row. Fort Dodge was the first team to cancel because of the threat of the ice on the roads. This year was the 20th anniversary of our school therefore, many alumni had returned for a reunion. So instead of the tournament, we played two generations of the basketball alumni and three generations of the volley-ball alumni. The volleyball games were played first. The first team was the most recent of the alumni teams.
The second team was the oldest of the alumni teams, and the third game was played against the middle generation of the alumni. The varsity girls won every one of the games played. The basketball games were next. The first team we played was the 1st generation of our school team. Our varsity won this game by 10 points. Our next game we played was the generation right above us; the current Lions team won this game by 10 points as well. At the end of the day, there was a devotional by a special speaker. The speaker spoke on being a servant rather than a master. As juniors, we thought that these few games were fun for us because we could see some of the past legends we had heard of from the past. It was fun playing against them.
