As the parent of a local high school athlete, I am writing to express my disappointment with the Sun Journal’s lack of coverage of girls’ ice hockey in the region.

The Lewiston High School girls’ team was recently sanctioned as a varsity sport. That was after much hard work and dedication by students, staff and parents.

These athletes and their coach have earned recognition by the local paper. The parents look forward to it; the grandparents expect it.

It’s important for the Sun Journal to highlight positive stories about the young people of this community who are focused, hardworking and committed to making Lewiston-Auburn a place they can proudly represent.
