  • Plenty of reasons to watch HS...

    After the PAC swim meet Jan. 21 a Tell City parent emailed me, “Thank you so much for spending your entire day at the swim PAC. I think the kids appreciate having an audience besides their parents occasionally. I know the parents appreciate it.”

    But it struck me as interesting that while swimming is generally one of the most watched sports in the Olympics, few non-parents show up to watch high school swim meets featuring kids they actually know.
