Lighten up, dude. Did you check the headline for the sectional swimming? Edgewood won, and the headline was McFarland loses. In the print edition, the entire first column was about McFarland. That was one way to cover the story, and the reporter went with it. This was a little human interest angle, plus a tie into the well known former coach for the Badgers. Not an unreasonable way to angle the story. These guys do a hell of a job considering they have to be the reporters for a ton of high schools, all while keeping up with the Badgers, Packers, Brewers, Bucks and all the smaller colleges in the area as well, with a shrinking budget for everything at the news paper. I think they do their best to be fair to all the schools, but its impossible to make it all exactly equal.


Congrates on your achievements. That being said and appreciated the featuring of Edgewood high school athletics is obscene in the weekend paper. Even when Edgewood loses it is featured in headlines, "EDGEWOOD DEFEATED. There athletes are always featured and the hypocrisy is unbelievable. Does the Journal staff have children and friends that go there? What is the angle for this type of coverage all the time. Give other schools equal press please! I see that a core amount of influential members of the Wisconsin sporting fraternity have kids that go there, that is a clue of course... but really what is the other reasons? Just look at Sundays paper to see the amount of ink given Edgewood. Lame sportsreporting
