Letter to the Editor

Hoping to settle a score

To the editor:

On Thursday night, Feb. 14, three Recreation Basketball League championship games were played one after another (5:30; 6:30; 7:30) at Bacon school.

Comment No. 1: All three games were well played, well coached and officiated and the kids played with enthusiasm and had fun. Each player was acknowledged at a brief trophy ceremony celebrating both the winning and losing teams after each game.

Comment No. 2: The Recorder sports editor, Paul Antonelli, was there. Excellent. He took team pictures and wrote up a story for the first two championship games (he took credit on the photos published of the winning teams the very next morning in the Recorder) Excellent again. But he left the gym and school prior to the start of the third game.

Complaint No. 1: The Recorder failed to cover, report on or follow up to see who won the grades 3-5 girls championship basketball game played at 7:30. Had they done any reporting of the game they would have found out that the Kentucky Wildcats had won a hard-fought game versus the Syracuse Orange.

Complaint No. 2: The Kentucky/Syracuse game was not reported on the next day like the other two games by the Recorder, no team picture was taken by the Recorder and as I write this letter on Thursday morning, Feb. 21, the Recorder has still not even reported the score.

Comment No. 3: Disappointing.

Bob Hoefs,

Amsterdam
