I went to school with both Matthew Dent and Jesse Buchmoyer, and was actually just wondering a couple days ago if anything was going to be done around town on the anniversary date. Those kids made a terrible decision that night, and paid the ultimate price. I am very happy that their memory lives on through this tournament, and hopefully future youth of Williams will know who they were, and know that just one misguided decision can change your life forever. The Grad Night program wasn't around when I graduated in 2004 that I can remember, but it is a great event that deserves the support of the community. While those 5 lives can never be brought back, hopefully their memory can help future youth make good decisions when it comes to underage drinking.
