This may worth something:

Letters to the Editor: Oct. 6

A writer says the lack of local coverage for high school sports outside of football is appalling. Another writer urges Utahns to vote against marijuana.

Further on.

After sending multiple press releases to The Spectrum regarding the success of Desert Hills Thunder Girl’s Tennis Team, not once has The Spectrum reported a single report on their season. As the head coach, I’m appalled at the lack of local coverage outside of HS football. Having the largest team in the state, finishing 1 point out of the State Championship title, the only school in history to win back-to-back Stephen Wade Invitational titles, winning our 4th consecutive undefeated region title, and winning 8 team matches against 5 losses in three years seems worthy of some sort of local newspaper recognition. On top of having only 1 senior in our top 14, we indeed one of the top State teams for years to come. It is a pity we can’t recognize these girls’ hard work, dedication, and performance in our local paper. I certainly understand the lack of available reporters with all the cutbacks. But, when a coach, like myself, provides a detailed press report including pictures, (and not even a response by the managing editor), I wonder if the paper has even an inkling of interest our sport as well as others.

Sloane Stephens Says It’s ‘Powerful’ Venus And Serena Williams Are Helping To Gain Equal Pay In Tennis

Tennis star Sloane Stephens is a Black sports superstar taking the world by storm. But that doesn’t mean she’s not aware of the double standards that still exist in her sport — like equal pay.

According to a recent Guardian report, the top 100 men in tennis have out-earned women of the same ranking 71 percent of the time.

Still, Stephens is optimistic that things will soon change especially thanks to tennis superstars, Venus and Serena Williams.

At Kings Mountain High, multi-sport athlete is a girl for all seasons

It’s hard to win an individual event in high school varsity sports. Kings Mountain’s Natalie Lutz won two in one day.

On Thursday, Sept. 20, Lutz played in a Big South conference golf match at 1 p.m. Her father, Robert, drove her to the Green Meadows Golf Club in Mount Holly. Lutz is a one-girl team and dad is her transportation.

Lutz shot a career-best 36 to earn medalist honors by three strokes. And she was done around by 3:15.

She didn’t have much time to celebrate, however. Her father rushed her back to Kings Mountain for a 4 p.m. tennis match against Gastonia Huss.
