This week, I took on the challenge of being a high school basketball referee! I was mentored by longtime PIAA referee, Kathy Goeringer, and she gave me a 15 minute crash course on the main things I needed to know before taking the court.

I walked away with a lot of respect for refs, after learning how difficult and demanding this job really is.
