I really enjoyed reading last month’s Network. However, as a softball player, I was very disappointed with the 13-line story on our championship. Listening to a lot of my friends, they expected it to be the front-page story or, at the very least, given its own feature and not shared space with golf and cross country.
This was the first state softball championship in school history. Our banner was one of two in the gym that did not have a number underneath the state champion column. There are many things that got more coverage than softball. One of the things we always talk about as a team is getting more recognition from the student body since softball hasn’t been a very featured sport in the past years; it typically comes behind volleyball and soccer. It feels like this is still the case. It feels like our accomplishment has almost been downplayed. That being said, again, congrats on a great issue!
