It Never Gets Old!
One of my favorite Small Town traditions is the celebratory parade when one of our high school teams wins a state title. We grow excellent athletes in this little town so there have been a number of these parades. Today we won not one, but two state titles: volleyball and boys’ cross country. Our girls’ cross country placed 2nd. Volleyball has been in the spotlight for the last three years with state titles. This is cross country’s first title.
The center of Small Town is less than two miles from the interstate. Police cars, ambulances, and fire trucks meet the buses at the exit. The kids pile onto the fire trucks and they ride through town with sirens blaring and horns honking. It’s quite the event. The highlight tonight? The cross country team ran alongside the fire trucks – running their victory lap, so to speak. It was a sight to see!
I think this is my 5th state title parade. It never gets old.
I LOVE this little town!
