Into the breach once again

Fortunately, fall sports have arrived and with it action in tennis, golf, cross country, soccer and football.

Unfortunately, what began last winter and continued through the fall, now applies for the first time to those sports and their coaches.

Unfortunately, in order to allow our two full-time writers, myself and George Bremer, to go out into the community to cover events and do features, we no longer have someone in the office whose responsibility it is to answer phones and collect results from area coaches each night.

Fortunately, technology has made it much easier for coaches to send us the information will still desperately want. Through our email at: sports@heraldbulletin.com, getting results is as simple as submitting that data to us in that way.

When we get that, we can copy and paste it into one of our documents and it will appear in the Scoreboard section the following morning. We can do that with greater speed and accuracy following writing our stories without needing to be in by the phones for an entire evening.

Fortunately, many coaches also have access to Varvee, an Internet service that automatically sends us the report just as soon as a coach submits it. It takes a bit longer to transfer the data from Varvee but it still bypasses the phone.

Most coaches have cellphones today and thus have the means to get that information to us in a timely manner, even while the bus is headed back to the school from a road event. Even if the head coach doesn't have a phone that will do that, I am sure that an assistant coach or even a student does have that technology.

One coach called in on Saturday and I happened to be in the office and took the call. He informed me that he had no means to use email or Varvee or a way top fax the results to us so he said we just wouldn't have to worry about his team's results this season.
