I believe that its completely

I believe that its completely disrespectful that Harlem was not mentioned once. I know they were not the best team this year but they had their key players also. Such as Goalie, Midfielder, and forward Austin Hatcher. Or Team captain, Midfielder, forward, and Defender, Kevin Bailey. Kevin Bailey is one of the best Defenders around, but Augusta Chronicle wouldn't know this because they don't bother to pay attention. Harlem sports always get the buttend of the paper. I know Grovetown High school is big news because they are new, but where are the stories about Harlem's loss...how tough they have had to struggle with half of their school being missing and most seniors for the Harlem Soccer team. I didn't hear a word about how 1 senior....1 SENIOR led the whole Harlem Soccer team. I can't remember the last time a Harlem Soccer player was on Outstanding Athletes on the back of Wednesday's columbia county paper. Kevin Bailey had 2 offers to play soccer from 2 separate colleges, but he turned them down and will be entering the US Army soon. Harlem students deserve more respect. The only reason people disliked us was because of our troublesome students from grovetown.....well they are gone.....and now Harlem is just old news, huh......
