    Joel, a great journal of many exciting memories of those years spent at Caverna. I can remember the baseball team winning the state title in 1961. I, too, was right there cheering the team on. They so deserved it after coming so close to going to the state basketball tournament in our senior year. A great group of boys who always gave it their all. Mr. Dorsey was so proud of all of you. You sure are good at gathering all the details. Love, Sue Donohue Houlihan.
