Moose Jaw Times Herald - - SPORTS -

in the pa­per, the pride of watch­ing your child be­ing in­ter­viewed by a Times-Her­ald re­porter, the thrill of shar­ing the ar­ti­cle with grand­par­ents and ex­tended fam­ily, the daily ri­tual of look­ing at pic­tures and ar­ti­cles on the fridge door and the legacy of care­fully plac­ing these ar­ti­cles and pic­tures in scrap­books. Stu­dents of­ten com­ment that sport is one of their favourite high school memories and the Times-Her­ald has proudly ac­knowl­edged the im­por­tance sport plays in the lives of many high school stu­dents.

The Times-Her­ald sports de­part­ment has al­ways put in a tremen­dous amount of time and ex­per­tise into re­port­ing high school sport. Over the years we have re­peat­edly heard from out of town coaches and par­ents how for­tu­nate Moose Jaw is to have a pa­per that cov­ers high school sport so ex­ten­sively. We have al­ways been thank­ful for the cov­er­age pro­vided by the pa­per.

The re­porter’s love of sport was of­ten re­flected in their ar­ti­cles. They did a fan­tas­tic job of high­light­ing lo­cal ath­letes and teams as they pro­gressed through their sea­sons and sports. It has been a tra­di­tion in some schools to post all of the ar­ti­cles on a bul­letin board as the school year un­folds. When one looks at the large amount of pic­tures and ar­ti­cles, you re­al­ize how ex­ten­sively your hard work­ing sports de­part­ment has re­ported high school sport.

It goes with­out say­ing that the high school ath­letic cov­er­age that the Times-Her­ald has pro­vided for many decades will be greatly missed. A sin­cere thank you.
