    As I prepare to write this week’s article I can’t help but think that the “getting’ ready” i.e. Planning, projecting and just dreaming, about any activity is almost as exciting as performing the activity itself.

The All-Stars then won the loser's bracket game against South Hardin to put them in the championship game against Campbellsville on Monday night, but the team would have to defeat Campbellsville twice due to them being undefeated in a double elimination tournament.
