Inquirer Letters Extra: Scoring a keepsake edition

A reader saved sports sections, because it was fun to look at them as keepsakes and see what was happening in college and professional sports when his children were in school sports.

Moving high school sports out of The Inquirer's sports section, and into the local news section, simply does not work for me.

My sons' scores appeared in the sports section when they were in high school. I saved those sections. It is fun to look at these keepsakes now and see what was happening in college and professional sports when one of my sons won the scholastic rowing nationals or the Stotesbury Regatta.

It is great to see what professionals did on the day my other son's team won a soccer playoff or lost in a later round.

It is also great for dreaming, high school athletes to see their own wins and losses next to that of their heroes.
