High school teams’ efforts deserved better treatment by Herald

What a lack of support shown by The Herald for two hardworking high school teams by the March 8 headline, “Wesco washed out”: Glacier Peak boys took fifth place at state; and the Arlington girls came back from a heartbreaking loss to the No. 1 team to claim a third-place victory.

We followed the girls team all season. They were very hard-working with a one-for-all-all-for-one attitude and great camaraderie.

Adults are supposed to encourage and be positive role models. How disappointing for these young people to be put down by your newspaper. Praise for their accomplishments would have been appropriate.
