Wrestling season is upon us and it would be really nice this year if the Herald could give the wrestlers in our area more coverage than in years past. I wrote in last year to the Herald and to the television stations regarding the lack of coverage and received nothing more than empty promises. The Columbia Basin has several athletes who dedicate themselves to this sport and it is always disappointing when the season rolls around and there are local tournaments that receive next to nothing in media coverage. It would be great to see more wrestler profiles done when the season starts similar to the layout done for football.
If a reporter spent some time in a wrestling room to see exactly what goes into stepping onto the mat, he or she would see how well deserved the media coverage is.
