Fair Critique

Dear Editor:

I am Teagan O’Rourke, the goalie for the SFDS 5th grade girls soccer team. I am writing you to talk about the recent article with the title 5th Grade SFDS Champions! The first thing I want to say is thank you for putting my team’s picture in The Times. But there is one thing that I wanted to bring to your attention. I do not completely understand why the boys’ season was mentioned, but not the girls. The boys team got a shout out for the win and a shutout game, but there was no acknowledgment of the girls’ season.

I would have liked to have seen an acknowledgment of my team’s undefeated season, 6-0-2. The girls also had a shutout championship game.  We won 3-0 against Blessed Trinity.  It would have been nice to see a more fair article. Some of my teammates who should be recognized are McKenzie Doyle and Nimah Mullen, for scoring the goals. Our main offense, Sadie Corvi, Reese Dennis, and Taryn Martin, and our awesome defenders Jane Bender, Hannah Laprice, and Maeve Murphy, helped our team get a shutout. The people I would like to recognize the most are our two coaches, John Martin and Ed Dennis, who led our team to victory. Thank you for taking the time to read this e-mail.

(Editor’s note: Thank you, Teagan! And congratulations to you, your teammates and coaches. We sometimes fail to give proper coverage because we rely on articles submitted to us. As a result, well-deserving teams sometimes get overlooked. We’re glad you wrote in, and we wish you continued success!)
