I am so disappointed that I have only seen one article about Wake Forest woman’s high school lacrosse team in your paper. The only article I have seen was on Feb. 25. Our Cougars just finished second in conference with a record of 9-2, our only loss to East Chapel Hill, and is the ONLY local team to make the playoffs!

It’s upsetting looking through the papers and seeing how little coverage women’s sports are getting. Playoffs started this week, and I am hoping to see something supporting our lady Cougars. Thanks!
