sports thoughts

 

Granville’s entrants onto various league and sectional teams continue to trickle in, most recent shows senior Karl Palmer making the Wasaren League first team as a defender.

This follows news of Granville golfers Matt Bernard, Sam McDermott, Garrett Brown and Ian Bixby making the Wasaren team.

I also have volleyball with four including Kaylee Pratt, Danielle Milanese and Sara Harrison and Alissa Dunavan.  

Nothing for girls soccer, football, field hockey yet – waiting for various section 2 teams to finish up?

I’m not sure.

All in all a pretty good sports season for Granville, although I think everyone would like to see those soccer teams pull a few more W’s next season.

With an eye on the start of the next school year and the fall of 2011, the good news for many of those teams will be their relative youth.

Football seems to be the only team that might have a bad case of ‘senior-itis’ with another large group of seniors on the way out via graduation.

With any luck for the continued success of all of the Horde teams, let’s hope there are big crowds of underclassmen practicing hard this very minute.

Got a favorite fall sports moment you want to crow about? A team you want to pat on the back, at least metaphorically?

Thoughts on the upcoming winter seasons?

If you have tried to post and were unable to, or you can’t figure out how to respond to this thing, let me know by e-mailing: [email protected] that’s a way to get me questions, comments, story tips – anything.

Oh – and questions of the week. Got one you want to see asked? Fire it over here and maybe I’ll give it a try. If yours is selected, I’ll certainly give credit where credit is due.
