Coaches, please make a New Year’s resolution of getting your athletes’ a bit more of the recognition they deserve.
This is the time of year when The Star needs the help of all those involved in athletics in the public schools.
With a small staff it is impossible to attend every game during a season of multiple sports, boys and girls, and as such, to borrow from the world of basketball and soccer, we need an assist.
That assist would be in the form of updated game action, scores, individual totals, highlights, photos and records.
Every athlete participating in sports during the school year deserves the attention for participating in athletics, which research shows is one of the last bastions of true discipline in high schools.
They make the sacrifices of time, energy and dedication and represent our community in the best possible of lights.
Our staff attempts to get to what games we can to shoot photos, but the details of the contests, well that is where we need the help.
The deadline for each week is the end of business on Monday. Coaches, delegate or take it as part of your challenge to give as many of those athletes’ recognition as possible.
Fax results to 227-7212 or better still email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 227-7827 and help us make this Sports page a reflection of the effort of our community’s athletes.
