About On Deck

  • On Deck Online is just that - an online version of my weekly look-ahead-at-area-sports column, "On Deck," that appears in the Times Argus print edition on Mondays. Keep checking back for live blogs of games (from gyms, fields and rinks that actually have wireless); extra quotes that didn't make it into my stories; the occasional mail bag to respond to email from readers; good writing I find from newspapers and sports sites around the country; and more.

It sure would have been nice if the Northfield Girls Marauder's had made the Fall Sports Guide. Do you know why they were ommitted?

For various reasons, I had less to do with the planning and production of this particular sports guide than the previous three, so I can't tell you for sure what happened.
I do know there are other teams not there, too (Chelsea boys and girls soccer, Peoples Academy cross country, Hazen girls soccer, Harwood field hockey and cross country, Spaulding cross country, U-32 cross country). I would love to see every team in every guide, but deadline pressures and the sheer number of teams can and do create a perfect storm for teams not to be included. It was no snub, I can promise that.

Well it may not have been a snub, but when you are the parent of one of the players, you look forward to being able to have this, just as you say above, as a keepsake for their "high school" career. Perhaps you could do a 2nd edition of the "missing teams"?????????

There is also a Northfield Cross Country Team. I don't think they made it either. thanks

As far as a second edition goes, you'd have to speak with my sports editor, Jamie Biggam, about that. I know he's been in touch with Northfield AD Frank Pecora and some of the other 'missing' schools/teams.

Thanks Anna, appreciate you responding to my concerns. I will go ahead and contact Jamie Biggam, if all the teams you mentioned were ommitted, then I think it's worth a 2nd copy. If he needs me to get the pic of our Varsity Girls and Cross Country and send in, I would be happy to do that.
Thanks again...

Haven't heard anything since I emailed your Sports Editor...Can you poke him about this? Pleeeeaaaseeee...BTW...
The girls have a home game vs. Thetford tomorrow @ 4:00 p.m. It would be great to get some coverage. It would be nice to get some pics out there that can be purchased!


I am sorry you haven't heard anything back, and I did let him know your concern. I have a feeling there won't be an opportunity to do another tab - the print schedule is always full, plus it won't be long before we have to start getting the winter one ready.

Good luck vs. Thetford! I'm not sure what the schedule is like for today...

8-0 Northfield, hope it was possible to get some coverage...guess I will find out in the morning. It seems that Montpelier and Spaulding get their fair share of coverage..it's too bad the smaller schools don't get as much.... :(

thanks for trying!!!

Well it looks like we did get some coverage in the paper on Thursday...thanks again, I am sure you had something to do with that! Now I am just looking for a picture of #13...hint hint...Just kidding Anna, I appreciate all you do....and look forward to reading your articles...just bummed that we didn't get in the sports guide. The girls apparently also missed the opportunity to get into the Northfield New this week....boys got a huge picture right at the top of the page...girls...nothing...Oh well....have a great weekend, Anna...I am sure we will get some coverage from Saturday vs. Montpelier...may not want it, though...LOL.

Thank you, Kelly. I hope to get out to see Northfield at some point this fall - Garvey Field is one of my favorite places to cover games, especially during foliage time.

We have Lyndon at home on the 14th and I believe Harwood at home on the 20th...we are @ U32 on Tuesday the 12th and @ Spaulding on the 22nd...still no pics of #13 even though we do have some shots posted from the thetford game. Am hoping to see some posted from last night's Montpelier game....but i know there was a lot going on in Montpelier for their homecoming yesterday!!!

you'd better hurry if you want to see the foliage, it's fading fast!!!
