To the Editor:
The Killeen Daily Herald needs to re-evaluate its coverage of high school sporting events.
Since my children attend Harker Heights High School, I will address the concerns that I have as it impacts HHHS.
The HHHS football team held its pep rally over a week ago, on the same day as their first scrimmage. This was a huge event that truly showcased the pride in our community, our school and our football team.
It was also an opportunity for us to welcome a new head football coach, who has already made great improvements in the football program at every level.
The bleachers at HHHS were completely packed for performances by the band, cheerleaders and Crimson Belles. The track was lined with representatives of local businesses and organizations who had set up booths.
This was truly a community event. Earlier that day, a scrimmage was held where HHHS displayed powerful offensive weapons and a strong defense.
So the next day I was excited to see what coverage the event and the game had in the Herald.
I almost didn’t see the small picture and caption of a Harker Heights play because of the HUGE picture and story covering Copperas Cove’s scrimmage. Nothing else about the game and nothing about the pep rally.
This morning, another huge picture and story about Copperas Cove’s loss, while each KISD school was relegated to a small corner of the sports page.
Stop the sports love affair with Cove and start covering KISD!
