Wabash County high school sports on Wabash WebTV

By Bill Barrows

As we move into the next faze of the high school sports season, I would like to take this time to thank some very important people who have helped us along the way in making the season to this point a success. First of all, a collective “thank you” to all of the student-athletes and their parents who have provided tons of memorable moments that we have witnessed to this point. Without you, there is little reason for us to document Wabash County sports exploits.

Another group that deserves a lot of credit are the coaches, who prepare the student athletes each and every day for their shining moments during the season. Long hours of preparation, practice sessions, meetings, interviews, dealing with weather conditions and schedule changes make their labor of love a tough road to navigate at times.
