With Wednesday being the last day of the year, I want to look ahead now. What do you think 2009 will bring us? You can take this as only a high school sports topic, or you can take it elsewhere and look at the bigger picture of Wichita, sports in general, the world.
I’m going to go out on a limb with my two predictions here (if you remember, longtime readers, I detest predictions. Pretty much because I detest being wrong. Hey, I’m one of the few that people know their real name!) My predictions for basketball are the Heights girls will win 6A and either East, Heights or Southeast will win 6A boys. There. That’s as far as I will go.
OK, let me take it one step further. I predict that someone will be absolutely evil in calling out a 15-year-old athlete. I predict that the East-Southeast game will have a huge crowd. I predict the Heights-Carroll girls games will be the two best we’ll see all season.
I predict that Carroll wrestling’s dual streak comes to an end. I predict that I will upset many Carroll fans with that comment. I predict that Goddard and Derby will duke it out for the 6A wrestling title.
So what do you expect from 2009? I’m sure there are tons better predictions than these, so add yours.
