How do I put this? I can't think of any way but straight out. It seems to me that the aunmot of publicity the PG basketball team gets is way out of proportion to all of the other teams at FMS. How many PG students are there? Ten? What about the rest of the high school teams? What about cross country? Raiders? Soccer team? Rifle team? For all I could tell they don't exist. The Caissons have a shot at a championship for the first time in recent memory and all that gets is a by the way, they are hosting Hyde Leadership next week. In the past, none of the teams got much coverage so I guess I really didn't notice before. However, this year all I hear about is the PG program. I appreciate the efforts to give the school more publicity. I do think that with limited resources you need to make more of an effort to look at ALL the team events and ensure that they get equal coverage. Sorry, but you asked.
