Wow...what crappy coverage by the LJW.

This is Sub-State for crying out loud! Are you even aware how competitive the Spring Hill Sub-State bracket is? This was a HUGE win by Baldwin.

What do you expect from the LJW, their coverage of high school sports in the area are pitiful. They cover LHS and FS fine, but any other area team is not even on their radar. Even Seabury, which granted, is not a great athletic school, gets little love from the LJW. There happens to be several good basketball teams in our area, Eudora girls, Baldwin boys, Perry boys just to name a few. But unless you have a magnifying glass, good luck finding any coverage in this paper. Perhaps all of the subscriptions from these area towns should be let to expire, then maybe they would get the hint. On second thought....................
