  2. Just a guy who wants to know whats going on with the spring sports on March 6th, 2017 10:34 am

    Sameen with the good updates, much appreciated for those quality segments on Boy’s Water Polo and Baseball. And to think he used an average of under 12 words for each sport, all I can say is perfect coverage.

    I’m assuming they aren’t discussing sports that are still in tryouts, for example Volleyball wasn’t mentioned either

    Not really, Tennis isn’t an important sport that pushes Metea’s athletic department forward. Don’t be upset that you chose to participate in a sport that has little to no importance to the Metea Media team.

    Why was I cut from tennis? I had a 4-0 record but everyone I played lied about the score and said that I was actually 0-4. The people I beat got in but I didn’t. The selection process is rigged and must be fixed if Metea wants to be even remotely close to good in tennis. P.S. Country Music is Trash
