A day to remember

I attended the Kays-Ostrom track meet at Nevada Union High School on the afternoon of May 3. What a wonderful day — sunny, warm and athletes! Anyone who has followed Nevada Union sports over the last 60 years knows the names Kays and Ostrom and what they have meant to athletics in Nevada County.

There was circulating in the crowd — coaches and retired coaches, teachers and retired teachers, athletes and former athletes, students and former students, and parents of all — a real “Joy in Flatbush.” It was the triumph of right over wrong, and we didn’t even have to hire “Louie” Freeh!
