A Heartfelt Thank You!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in making this column/blog happen each week...most especially, the varsity head coaches. Without their input, the task would have been impossible. That list includes Tony Green (football), Chuck LaPorte (boys soccer), Alberto Starace (girls soccer), Mike Barnett (volleyball), Eric Parson (girls tennis), Mary Quinn (field hockey) and Cindy Walls (boys and girls cross country). I thank you...each and every one of you!
Through their insight into their programs, game/match summaries, one-on-one interviews and updated statistics week-to-week, The Week That Was became a reality for the Bishop O’Connell High School community...one that I am led to believe was truly appreciated by the school’s following.
I would also like to thank the student/athletes for providing me the inspiration to put your accomplishments into words. I truly enjoyed it! I learned so much and have a greater appreciation for all that you are, both on and off the playing field. Congratulations on a great fall campaign.
Lastly, a big shout-out to the support staff for each of the respective teams, whether it be the assistant coaches or statisticians, for their contributions. Ditto to the parents whose insight also provided details that otherwise might have gone overlooked.
All in all, a wonderful experience! Again, I thank you, one and all!
We’re between seasons now, so the next blog will appear in December – once the winter sports seasons are truly under way.
Being who we are and where we are in our lives today, there is so much to be thankful for...so let’s do so! Enjoy the holiday break! Happy Thanksgiving!
