Through injury and illness, Bobcats strive to keep team together (12/13/12)
It's a typical high school basketball game. The parking lot quickly fills with cars and trucks. Fans stream into the school, past the trophy cases filled with mementos of previous conquests. The aroma of fresh-popped popcorn and steaming-hot hamburgers and hot dogs waft from the concession stand, calling to the mostly blue- and white-clad spectators who file into the brightly lit gymnasium and find their customary bleacher seats. The opposing teams warm up, cheerleaders cheer, and strains of "The Star-Spangled Banner" drift across the court. Then, as the players break their huddles and the announcer exhuberantly cries out their names, the fans stand as one and welcome their beloved Delta Bobcats. All six of them.
