Heads up!

Don’t you really hate finding out about something after it has already happened? I know I do, especially when it can be covered right here in the sports pages of your favorite weekly community newspaper, The Springfield Sun.

Believe it or not, you can play a role in what goes into these sports pages every week. You can contribute by letting us know about sporting events before they happen. If we know something is happening in advance, we can schedule one of our crack staff of trained professionals to be at the event to give it proper coverage and take exciting, action-packed photos.

There have been a few times when I'd be traveling to Bardstown and see a baseball game going on at Burg Park, or going down Perryville Road I'll spot a soccer game happening behind the school board building. Why didn't I know about these events?

I’m new to the area and I don’t know about a lot of stuff going on sports wise if there's not a schedule handed out in advance. That’s why I’m asking you to let me know about sports in the community.

While our primary focus is Washington County High School and St. Catharine College athletics, it's important to have a well-rounded sports section that includes sports within the community, be it a church league, youth league, etc.

I can’t guarantee that we will cover everything submitted to us simply because of the limited space in the paper, but at least we can let our readers know about your event in some way, even if it’s a mention in the community briefs.

This is an invitation for you to fill up my calendar with sports. Keep me busy, please! Send information about your upcoming sports events to jimmie@thespringfieldsun.com or give me a call at (859) 336-3716 during business hours.
