Although the characterization of my involvement and response in the Letter to the Editor (“Volleyball academics,” July 22) was inaccurate, I do feel sad and apologize that some of our athletes were not properly recognized for their academic achievements.
I appreciate their parents bringing the oversight to our attention and share concerns about how some of our athletes have been treated in the past. I know that I speak for Mr. Engh, PHS Principal, as well when I say we will continue our efforts to ensure that their future experience is a positive one.

The Platteville Journal will print most letters to the editor, regardless of the opinion presented. The Journal reserves the right to edit material that is libelous or otherwise offensive to community standards and to shorten letters The Journal determines are excessively long. All letters must be signed and the signature must appear on the printed letter, along with a contact number or email for verification. Some submitted letters may not be published due to space constraints. “Thank you” letters will not be printed. All letters and columns represent the views of the writers and not necessarily the views of The Platteville Journal.
