One of the things we do at the Courier & Press is try very hard to balance coverage during regular seasons. We try to see all the teams of the Southern Indiana Athletic Conference and as many area schools as possible in any give sport.
For instance, I’ve seen Mater Dei, North, Memorial and Harrison in volleyball and will see Castle and Bosse Thursday (Sept. 12). Hopefully, it will work that I can see Reitz and Central play each other or possibly a strong program from the area like Boonville, Mount Vernon or North Posey, among others.
But coaches give us way too much credit when they get mad at us for showing up at a loss, thinking we know which team will win. We just go where we can, when we can. And, unfortunately, one of the teams at each of those games will lose.
It’s always tough, and we understand that, but it’s not our fault, either.
