The Morton Lady Potters have an educated eye
watching and cheering them on this season!

The renowned sports journalist, Mr. Dave Kindred has only missed a handful of Lady Potters games since he first started coming four years ago.  Since moving back to the area after spending the last 45 years traveling the globe in search of yet another sports story, Dave has found comfort in being a "fan".   He isn't sure how many times he had to repeat the line "I'm not a fan, I'm a writer" throughout his career.  Being a fan can cloud the objectivity of capturing those wonderful sports stories we often read.  But now, Dave feels at peace with just enjoying Morton Lady Potters basketball.
