Coaches who call in box scores should be commended
But so far, almost every day since the season officially started on Nov. 25, there have been box scores in the paper.
Since I've been the girls basketball beat writer, I have gotten into a habit of cutting out the box scores and taping them into a legal pad for reference. It's helpful information to see how teams fare from game to game, week to week and month to month. It's also helpful information when putting together the Top of the Crop.
I think it's important for head coaches and their assistant coaches to know how much we appreciate them calling in their box scores every night. Some do it while riding home on the bus, others do it immediately after the game and some do it when they get home.
The time and effort is truly appreciated.
Thank you to everyone who has ever taken the time to call in, fax in or e-mail in a box score.
It's important information that helps us recognize as many kids as possible in our coverage area.
Please keep the calls, e-mails and faxes coming in.
