It’s good to see the sun out and I’m looking forward to when the ground is completely thawed out – shouldn’t be long until the teams can actually get out on the grass and play. Coming soon previews for the seasons of all four teams.
In other sporting news…record holders sound off.
An effort is gathering some momentum to put together a sports archive with not just the records and record holders but the yearly achievements of each team.
There is, as far as I know, no one stop source with the record of the 1979 track team.
Not just whether they won a sectional meet or set state records but what was their overall mark, who was on the team, where and when did they compete?
At this point no Granville athlete can consult the record book and see who they’re approaching in, for example, overall wins for a wrestling season or career.
Does the ERA for a high school pitcher get recorded and if so who has the best?
Working on an article about this and also looking for people who kept track or have some ideas on how to tackle this issue.
Drop me a line here with any thoughts.
If you have every game played, the scores and the roster for the 1980 basketball team you played on – fire off an email with that information.
This is going to be an ongoing project that should get easier as it goes but every journey begins with a single step, eh?
This is for every sport in every season and ideally for every year from the first competitive sports teams from here on out.
Ask a friend, ask your mom, just like the truth in the X-files – it is out there.
