Go, go Panther parents

Fall already

 

 

 

Like it or not the fall is fast approaching. One of the few consolations to the season before winter breathing down our necks is the return of high school sports. Honestly, win or lose I just like to attend games and frequently have to remind myself I’m not there to cheer the Granville kids on but report on the game. With that said, it’s time for the annual plea to parents of the Panthers.

I have spoken with several parents each season who ask why we don’t cover the Panthers. The first answer is that it’s just for fun, you wouldn’t see that coverage in another newspaper, but this is a hometown paper, which brings me to the second reason. Time. I’m only one guy and can’t get to everything. Try as I might, I often can’t make each varsity contest for as long as I would like to. Darrell has this thing about reporting something other than sports (I’m not sure what’s wrong with him – just kidding) so I have to spend a little time going to other events, meetings, etc.

The point?

I have made a plea in the pages of the paper before and in person to a number of parents and asked them to send us Panthers reports. Parents say they’ll think about it or otherwise respond enthusiastically, but nothing comes from it.

These pieces don’t need to be feature-length articles or play-by-play material. Something as simple as:

 

Granville traveled to (insert town’s name here) and defeated the (insert nickname here) by a score of (insert score here).

 

Put that blurb with a picture and you have instant coverage.

Email it all it and wah-la – the Granville Panthers in the Sentinel. [email protected] is the place you want to send the shots and the best way to send text would be typed into an email, unless you have Microsoft Word at home.

 

Time is a factor as well as space, but we’ll do what we can. With Sunday games, if the volunteer parent or coach sent the materials off via email that night or by 8 a.m. Monday morning it would be available to us to include in the paper. Late submissions would be considered for the following week.
