‘B’ champs deserved more coverage in BDN

The Monday, Nov. 23, edition of the BDN Sports section had big articles and photos of the losing Bangor Rams in Class A football and of the Dover-Foxcroft Ponies in the Class C state final.

Yet one had to look at the bottom of page C4 to find a story about the winning Class B state champion, the Leavitt Hornets, Eastern Maine’s leaders.

As an alumnus of Leavitt, I was disappointed in the coverage by this paper which claims to cover Eastern Maine. For those of us who watched the game, we saw an outstanding performance by a fine group of student athletes.
