Win­ners missed

The London Free Press - - LETTERS -

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
