I am very disappointed in the lack of high school Alpine and Nordic skiing coverage, though there is significant coverage of high school basketball and some of hockey, swimming and other sports.

While I understand that basketball is a very popular sport, all sports deserve a level of coverage. Student-athletes in every discipline work and train hard and deserve recognition.

The number of ski racers may be fewer than the number of basketball players, but skiing is a lifetime sport and is important to the Maine economy. Perhaps with a little coverage, more people would venture out to Maine’s wonderful trails and slopes.
