Letter: Give us more swim team news

It would be nice to see the local girls' high school swim and dive teams get more coverage. They excelled at the state championship this year. These girls compete against larger schools that have superior facilities to train in, such as indoor pools. When our local swimming pools shut down around Labor Day, these girls have to travel to outlying areas to use an indoor pool. It takes a huge commitment by the girls and their families to make sure they get adequate training time in.

Also, could we see a few photos of girls and the teams in the newspaper so the girls know that their achievements are recognized and appreciated?

It appears that good coverage for Southridge, in particular, is lacking. It is truly amazing that we have a state dive champion from the Tri-Cities.

I hope to see more coverage in this regard coming soon.
