  • Stephens: Tee’s big night joyful for everyone

    GOSHEN – Sports provide the full range of emotions, but too often it’s the negative emotions we see on display.

    The rage from a parent yelling at an official, the disappointment of an unexpected loss, the sadness of a season coming to an end – the negatives are easy to spot.

    But Friday at North Oldham we got to see an emotion you don’t often see on a court or field, but one that’s as noticeable as any.

    We saw pure joy.
