Ways to report sports results

With the winter sports season soon underway, the newspaper is seeking the help of area coaches in reporting results in a timely manner.

There are often more games than people available to cover on any given night, making it impossible for the newspaper to be at every home game. Therefore, we request that coaches submit their game results as soon as possible after each contest, regardless if it is a home or an away game.

The newspaper strives for excellence in its reporting and we rely on the coaches or managers to send in results so that their teams get the coverage they deserve.

For basketball, coaches should report the following information: final score; score at the quarter breaks; point scorers for both teams; any pertinent statistics (rebounds, steals, assists, blocks), number of free throws attempted and made; number of three-point shots made by the team; any outstanding individual efforts should be noted and any comments on the game itself are also welcome. Box scores are also welcome.

For wrestling, coaches should send: match score and individual results by weight class, including any exhibition matches. Coaches comments on how the team is wrestling or specific individuals are performing are also welcome.

For skiing and swimming, team scores and individual times for each event should be submitted. For cheerleading, team scores and order of placement at competitions should be turned in.
