Milton High School Athletics

Cliff Jones must be living large!   Wow.  What a year it has been for the athletes at Milton High School in Milton, Georgia.    Yesterday the school competed in not 1, not 2, but 3 state championship finals.

Yes, indeed.  You guessed right.   They did it.   The put their big girl pants on, they manned-up and won all three championships at the state level.   That makes what?   6 or 7 or 8 state champion athletic teams for the school this year?   Congratulations to every parent, to every kid, to every coach, to every trainer, to every chiropractor, to every sibling, to every water boy, to every water girl, to every bus driver, to all the teachers, and the hundreds of doctors, radiologists, orthopedics, on to the guy at the top.  

A couple of months ago I was dropping my son off at the school for a weight lifting class at 6:15 am and the lights were on in the stadium.  I drove on over to see what was going on before the sun was close to coming up and there was a girls lacrosse practice going full tilt.    

It is the long hours, the years of practice that make champions.   Milton practices.   Big time.  Winners all.  Congratulations to all.

If I could change one thing for Milton High School  (besides building a swimming pool for the school AND THE COMMUNITY TO USE  365) I would install an X-RAY machine in the school and have it open every Saturday and every day after school while all the practices are going on with a radiologist on call.    It's not that the orthopedics are getting rich on the kids it's just such a waste of time to wait a day or three to see a doctor and then if your insurance doesn't allow it, not be able to go directly to get an x-ray and the proper medical care immediately.
