For a team that was expected to experience some growing pains early in the season, the Hills-Beaver Creek girls are playing basketball at a high level. The Patriots posted three wins in a five-day span last week to up their record to 5-0. Two of the five wins were Red Rock Conference conquests, and...
I don’t know why, but maybe because the Peterson family celebrated Thanksgiving almost a month ago, it seemed to me that December wasn’t ever going to get here.
