Celebrating the 2022-23 Davenport boys team's title run


Last updated 3/23/2023 at 10:38am

Since the Davenport boys basketball team won the program's first state title three weeks ago, maybe you've been sitting at home pondering the following question:

"Is there a way to compile every news article and several photos from this historic run into one convenient location? If there is such a compilation, will it be available to me before graduation and summer plans?"

The answer, fortunately for you, is yes.

The Lincoln County Record-Times is planning to create a magazine-style publication about this year's title winning team.

The publication should include the following items:

• Articles written by yours truly from throughout the season.

• Unpublished photos from the season, state playoffs at the Spokane Arena and championship celebration.

• Forewords written by head coach Matt Henry and myself.

• A team roster and accompanying photos of each team member.

• The state tournament bracket.

• And more.

To create such a publication, we will need the community's help. Businesses are encouraged to purchase half-page and full-page ads, all of which will be in color, for inclusion in the publication.

Individuals can contribute too, by sponsoring this memento and having your name listed on a page proudly titled: "This publication was made possible by the following sponsors..."

And who doesn't want to have their name listed next to a champion?

For our part, a portion of the proceeds will be contributed to the Davenport Basketball Association, which puts on a large youth basketball tournament every President's Day weekend and supports athletes from kindergarten through high school.

We're aiming for a publication date in early May...yes, in plenty of time for graduation.

With any questions or to contribute, please call Janelle Hein at our office 509-725-0101. Or text or email me at 360-768-7513 or drew@cheneyfreepress.com.

We truly appreciate all the community support we receive and are excited to give back in a small way through this publication.
