Assistance sought in reporting games

10 years ago

    With the fall sports season now under way, the newspaper is asking the help of all of its coaches in reporting results in a timely manner.
When possible, the newspaper requests that coaches or managers send in their results as soon as the game has finished, regardless of if that particular team is home or away.
The newspaper strives for excellence in its reporting. With so many games scheduled on any given day, it is impossible to attend every game in person. Therefore, we rely on the efforts of our coaches to send in results so that local teams get the coverage they deserve.
For soccer, the newspaper requests that coaches report the following information: final score; who scored goals for both teams, including players first and last names, along with the time of the goals; who had assists for both teams; how many saves each goalie had; and how many shots each team attempted. A brief description of how each goal was scored would also be helpful.
For golf, the team scores and individual results for golfers should be reported.
For cross country meets, complete results should be sent into the newspaper, including the length of the course, team scores and individual runners times.
There are a couple of ways to report results to the newspaper. Game information can be emailed to sports reporter Kevin Sjoberg at starherald@nepublish.com or faxed to 764-7585.
