    Sports & Fitness: Again, I am biased because of my involvement with what,n is in my opinion, the best team in the world, but I believe sports teams, while not necessarily competitive at the State level on a consistent basis, are top notch. Opportunities are plentiful. Anyone may participate in almost every sport. The support by fans varies depending upon how good teams are, but they are there for big games, which is important. The facilities are under construction due to a recent referendum and should be better following the completion. Everyone who is involved with athletics enjoys them a lot and many are multi-sport athletes.
