Remembering Two CoachesWritten by Jacqueline Skarda
A Bittersweet beginning to the basketball season.
Broken Bow played their first game since a terrible tragedy.
The beginning of basketball season is an exciting time of year for all area teams.
Broken Bow high school was no exception this evening for their first game of the season against Sutherland.
The crowds were cheering for their respective teams but unlike many first games, the gymnasium fell silent for a few moments.
It has been almost six months since the team was in a horrible car accident on the way back from a basketball camp.
Coaches Zane Harvey and Anthony Blum were among the three killed in the wreck.
It also injured several players.
Tonight before the boys game, the packed gymnasium held a moment of silence to remember the beloved coaches and teachers, followed by song.
The teachers were an inspiration to not only the players, but the students, teachers and entire community.
The referees at tonight’s game also donated their official fees to the Broken Bow Little Feet, Big Dreams Capital Campaign in remembrance of Blum and Harvey.
