    The Best of John's Journal 2018-19: Honorable Mention Stories

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.
