Reader appreciates sports coverage
To the Editor,
This is a long overdue appreciation for Darren Lum and his reporting on all levels of school sport.
Darren allows us to follow all teams, not just the stars, see what actually took place in their games or competitions, and most importantly we get to read the kids’ names. Imagine the number of friends and relatives who have appreciated reading about someone important to them.
Over the years these student-athletes become familiar to us, even though we may not actually know them. Added to this, his photography provides interesting tastes of the action.
Darren gets it that school sport is about the experience, not just winning. The coaches mentioned in the June 21 edition are prime examples of this.
Thanks, Darren, for your enjoyable, reliable reporting. Hopefully awards will come your way too.
