Letter to the editor

Thursday, November 29, 2012 by The Press in Opinion

Congratulations to the team, coaches

To the Editor:

Congratulations to the 130-pound Catty football team for winning the Colonial League championship.

What an accomplishment for a first-year head coach and his team of great assistants.

This is a team that did not even have enough kids to field a team last year and had fewer than 15 players this year.

The 130-pound team lost only one game all season, to Bangor (9-1).

They won the rest of their games, many by the mercy rule.

This team was quite exciting to watch, with 30 plus offensive plays and many defensive schemes.
