Time to get going

I’ve got to get in gear now. I have less than two hours than my scheduled departure time for Norton and tonight’s game. I was hoping to make a few stops in Hays to get food and drinks for after tonight’s contest, but if I dally around, that won’t be possible.

At least I’m now dressed to go. That took too long this morning as well. I’ve got to start going to bed at a decent hour.

That won’t be an issue tonight. I won’t be home until after 11:30 due to the long trip. And I have to turn right around and go to Hoisington for its volleyball tournament tomorrow morning at 9. Phillipsburg and Smith Center are involved, and i just found out they won’t play until 10, so I have a little more time to get down there, although it’s only 30-35 minutes.

I”m expecting Norton to emerge from tonight’s game still undefeated. Smith Center is a good team, but I don’t think the Redmen have enough to keep up with the many weapons the Bluejays can throw at a team. The game should be closer than any of Norton’s first three, but I would be surprised if Smith Center can emerge with this one. Then again, Smith Center has defied the odds before.
