    Why is this called the “Prep Blog – covering high school sports?”

    In the last week, every blog post except two are about football, and those two were about volleyball. When was the last time you posted about soccer? It’s pretty inconceivable that a local newspaper in a region that loves soccer would just completely ignore the girls who play it.

  2. The blog is a supplemental outlet for our prep coverage, mostly for items that won’t run in the newspaper or appear elsewhere on the website. We do a lot with all prep sports, regarding event coverage, features and previews.

    Here’s the non-football coverage we’ve done since Thursday:

    — Bellarmine Prep beats Olympia for the Narrows 4A girls soccer title. This ran on the front page of the sport section on Thursday.

    — A feature on Gig Harbor cross country runners that ran in Thursday’s newspaper.

    — Today (Saturday), we had reporters covering the district cross country meets, 4A district girls swimming and the Narrows League 4A and 3A volleyball tournaments.

    DOUG – I think you coverage is excellent given the amount of teams and sports you cover with limited resources at best. And this comec from an East-Sider……….

  4. SouthHillCoug says:

    I’m going to stand by my comment. Your coverage of soccer is woeful.

    If you don’t believe me, go check what the TNT has as the SPSL South this morning. The complete regular season was finished on Thursday, with all teams playing 16 games.

    Right now, you only show Beamer playing 15 games, Puyallup playing 12, Rogers playing 13 and Federal Way playing 9.

    Forget about hoping that you might have a playoff schedule somewhere, as you do for the other sports – you don’t even have all the regular season results.

    By any measure, that is a pathetically inadequate effort for one of the most popular sports in this region.

    And please don’t complain that the schools aren’t providing the information – every prep soccer fan knows that the Seattle Times standings are accurate, usually the night that the game is completed.

  5. SouthHillCoug says:

    I thought pointing out the inaccurate standings might spur a little research – I know that newspapers usually pride themselves on accuracy, so I figured at least that would be corrected. It seems rather embarrassing for a local newspaper to knowingly publish inaccurate information.

    But no, it’s still inaccurate. According to the Tacoma News Tribune, Federal Way soccer went 0-8-1 during a 16 game season, not the 5-9-2 reflected by the Seattle Times.

    Meanwhile, there are three more blog posts today about volleyball.

    I think I’ve made my point, and I’m done here – in more ways than one.
