Newton Poll - 03/13/2010

A big heartfelt thank you to the Newton High Rams and Coach Rasmussen for giving our community such an exciting basketball season. Even though I know they would have loved to win State, making it to the Final Four and ending with a 30-2 season is something to be extremely proud of. The team played as gentlemen, with extreme poise and discipline. Newton County should make it a point to let them know how much this season meant to all of us. Thank you again ... GO RAMS!"
