The Best of John's Journal 2018-19: Honorable Mention Stories
This is a fun time for me. Another school year has ended and Iandapos;m going back through all the memories from 2018-19 via the postings here on Johnandapos;s Journal. From the first day of practice for fall sports in August though the end of spring state tournaments in June, Iandapos;m reliving lots of wonderful experiences as I traveled around the state, meeting people, watching events and sharing their stories.
The annual goal at this point is to select a Top 10 list of my favorite Johnandapos;s Journal stories. This is always a difficult task; Iandapos;ve been with the MSHSL for a decade now and this yearly summer project, while not easy, is always fun.
Looking back at 2018-19 has been a delightful mission. I went through 386 total entries that were posted between August and June, winnowing stories down to a manageable list; and by andquot;manageableandquot; I mean I managed to whittle it down to 31 stories. From there Iandapos;m selecting my personal favorite Top 10 (those 10 have been chosen and Iandapos;m in the process of ranking them). I also came up with five Honorable Mention stories. This was tough.
