I was excited to hear that the Hilton Head Island High School boys track team won second place at the state track meet in Columbia last weekend. The girl's team finished eighth.
I know how hard these athletes practice and how hard they work. The weather was very hot, and they persevered to win second place and seventh place in the entire state.
I was very disappointed that The Island Packet relegated this accomplishment to two sentences on an inside page of the May 12 sports section. This was especially disconcerting when I saw a large headline and a picture of someone who was caught dealing drugs.
People question the actions of our future generation? Well, who gets all the publicity? Not the hard-working successful young people. People who are caught or suspected of wrongdoing. What is wrong with this picture?
Congratulations, Seahawks. Go team. Great job.
