I was quite disappointed when I turned to the sports section Monday morning. I was anticipating an article on the Parkside girls field hockey team winning the silver medal at OFSAA last weekend. Instead, there was no mention.
It really should not have surprised me, as there was no article in June when Parkside won gold in double A soccer at OFSAA. For the second time in three years. But who would know that, as the first time went by unnoticed by the paper as well.
Is it because the school is in St Thomas? Is it because it was a young women who won, not young men?
There are many readers of the London Free Press in St Thomas and surrounding area. I would hope any local group who proved themselves to be among the best in the province would be celebrated and featured. Susan Williams St. Thomas
