SATURDAY SENTINEL: GGS eighth-graders don't get enough credit
One week ago, we ran a story on the Gardner Grade School eighth-grade girls basketball team and its players making a second straight appearance at state.
A graphic accompanying the story credited the class of GGS eighth-graders with being in school for seven state appearances across three sports during the past four years. In addition to three berths in basketball, GGS — or South Wilmington Grade School, which hosts GGS for a co-op in some sports — has appeared three times in track and field and once in softball, the graphic shared.
It turns out the graphic — and the reporter who researched it (me) — short-changed the class. A couple of emailers alerted me that I'd overlooked girls volleyball, where the seventh-grade Lady Tigers placed fourth in the state in 2012.
