I can just hear the hoop fans now.
“Hey, great football coverage. Congratulations to Camas. But what about basketball?”
It’s true that during the first week of the high school hoops season, The Columbian didn’t cover a single game, at least in the classic sense.
And there were some big games last week, like the Union girls knocking off Prairie, or Battle Ground boys beating Crater of Oregon at the Moda Center.
But it doesn’t mean we didn’t go to any games last week.
Reporter Joshua Hart actually went to several basketball games last week. He just didn’t write any game stories.
Ever since covering the state soccer championship three weeks ago, Josh has been doing almost nothing but covering basketball — attending practices and games, talking to coaches and players, taking pictures.
It’s all work for our winter sports preview, which will be published with Sunday’s print edition of The Columbian.
