Why is your paper biased on its reporting of school sports and events? Your reporters need to pull up the listing of all Lodi Unified high schools and give equal reporting of all students and team successes, in particular McNair High School, home of the Eagles. These kids get overlooked time and time again.
A case in point: area team wrestlers. There was mention of Jim Wilson, a McNair wrestler, because he is a "Lodi resident," but no mention of his teammate, Malique Micenheimer, at the Masters.
Also, the McNair boys and girls varsity basketball teams went to playoffs. The boys made it to the second round before losing a close one. Let's not forget to mention the lack of support during football and soccer.
Its hard enough being the new school with you supporting bias against a Lodi Unified school, Ronald E. McNair High School. Just because Lodi High has those "fanatics" is no reason to overshadow other schools.
Fly, Eagles, fly! Team mom has your back.
Note from Scott Howell, sports editor: Despite being in the Lodi Unified School District, McNair and Bear Creek high schools are not in the Lodi News-Sentinel coverage area. This decision is driven by subscribership. The News-Sentinel does, however, occasionally highlight area athletes who attend schools outside of its coverage area, as was the case with Jim Wilson.
