I enjoyed Sports Editor Jeff Lowe’s article “Former Badger coach authors second book.” I would like to point out an important fact that was incorrect.

The article stated that the book’s author, Ken Wiginton, led the Badger basketball team in 1984-1985 to its first district title in 37 years. In fact, the 1961-’62 Badger basketball team coached by Joe Carl Leach and led by John Bush and Tommy Patterson won the district and bi-district playoff games and was defeated at the regional basketball tournament played at G. Rollie White Coliseum in College Station by Buna, the defending 1960-’61 and eventual 1961-’62 state champion.

Thanks. And keep writing the interesting and good articles.
