(Photo by Mark Carpenter)By Mark Carpenter-Four times he has tried, four times he has failed. For all the outstanding things that Sheriff Kimmy Rogers has done for Adams County, there is one obstacle that he still has yet to overcome. For the past four years, Sheriff Rogers has tried every trick in his extensive playbook in nothing but futile attempts to handle the ultra-talented Venture Production Hawks on the basketball court. Four times the Sheriff has thrown down the gauntlet, and four times the Hawks have fired it right back at him with a giant “L” attached.The latest loss on the ledger for the Sheriff and his recruited team of All-Stars came on Sunday, Feb. 17 at West Union High School, before a standing room only crowd, almost 100% of them on hand to cheer on the heavily favored Hawks, and they weren’t disappointed. Behind a 40-point performance from the unstoppable “Dunkin” Darrel Grooms, the Hawks made it four in a row over the bewildered Sheriff’s All-Stars taking a 72-63 victory along with the game trophy once again.All of the money raised on Sunday goes back to Venture Productions to fund their many activities, including Special Olympics, Competitive Dance, Cheer Squads, travel expenses, and uniforms. According to Liz Lafferty, Superintendent at Venture Productions, Sunday;s contest and related activities raised more than $6,000.“The annual basketball game is a true example of what community is and what can be accomplished when people support each other and the programs available in Adams County,” said Lafferty. “People with disabilities are my passion and I am blessed to be able to connect them to our community so they can work, live, and be a part of something meaningful to them.”As far as the basketball game itself, even with the Sheriff bringing in ringers from other counties, it made no difference, as the Hawks raced to a big first quarter lead behind an offensive explosion (15 points) from “Dunkin” Darrel and a basket from the Hawks’ newest star, Hunter Rapp. The All-Stars tried to stay close behind a seven-point effort from John Shope but still trailed 21-13 after the first period.In the second stanza, it was 12 combined points from Chasity Glascock and T.J. Liston that accounted for all of the Hawks’ points as they took a 33-23 lead into halftime. The halftime entertainment was a dance routine by the Venture Productions Ignite Dance Team, much to the delight of an enthusiastic audience.Grooms was back in the lineup in the third quarter and again he dodged the Sheriff’s defense, like the Bandit running from Buford T. Justice. Grooms added 15 more points to his total and aided by baskets from Michael Bailey and Dylan Lowe, the Hawks led 53-41 as the third quarter closed.Give the All-Stars credit, however, as they didn’t throw in the towel and began to rally as the fourth quarter progressed, cutting the Hawks’ lead down to three at one point as secret weapon Savalas Kid came alive for three baskets while Shope fired in four of his own. With their lead shrinking, the Hawks never panicked and with their winning streak in peril, called on “Dunkin” Darrel once more and the Adams County hoops legend delivered, scoring clutch baskets down the stretch and getting help from teammates Kenny Nichols and Mark Helfenstine as the Hawks made it a perfect four for four against the Sheriff’s squad, holding high the prized trophy after the 72-63 triumph.Even as the favored Hawks delivered for their fans, the most important thing on Sunday afternoon may not have been the final score, but all of the smiles and laughter that filled the WUHS gymnasium for nearly two hours. From Charlie Gardner and Connie Riggs taunting Sheriff Rogers to the fans who rose to their feet each time one of their favorites headed down the court on the dribble, it is safe to say that a good time was had by all.last_img
