    Wow. That's amazing.

    Did the News Herald do anything more than the gamer I found via google?

    If the first girl was named Buck, is this one named Hopper?

    Honestly... if she isn't SI sportsperson of the year, retire the fucking honor.


    I've never seen such an effort on such a tiny stage.

    Haha, what a fuck up by both them and the PD. In one of the most hilarious cases of burying the lead, here are the last two paragraphs of the PD story on this race. Granted, Berkshire is about as fringe a school as the PD covers, but c'mon!

    I will revise -- not a fuckup by the N-H b/c they did have the story the day after it happened. PD, tho, should have had muuuuuuuuuch more.

    TheSportsPredictor, is that in their coverage area? If so, that is indeed a major gaffe by the writer, no?

    PD, it is more of a fringe school, but you would think they would do a follow-up. They did name a couple Berkshire kids as players of the week in September.

    NH covers 'em, they got the story.

    Since it appears the Plain Dealer left very little space at all for the entire meet, if you focus on that girl, what would happen to the people that won the meet? A follow-up was certainly warranted. I suppose they had to get in their 12 pages of professional and major college coverage that day, though, because that stuff certainly isn't available anywhere else.
