Then why does EVERY other news outlet cover these schools? Remember you don't have to be Catholic to go to a Catholic school. Not giving these kids their dues under some cloud of religous intolerance is disgusting!!!

Based upon the response I received it was not an oversight but a calculated plan to discriminate aganst the private schools. And I thought we were beyond that!

Good morning folks. This comment chain is appearing on my website as well so I'm going to just weigh in briefly. John went to Gordon College and I am a St. John's Prep alum. It's not my map or story, but there is no intentional effort by Patch websites to slight any private religious institution in this matter or any other.

Gene, your conclusion from my response could not be further from the truth, and is really ridiculous in that there is no evidence whatsoever from Patch news coverage to prove your theory. Quite the contrary, actually. I was simply attempting to explain that we were not singling out Bishop Fenwick from the map. In retrospect, we probably should have included at least information on the other games as well. That was an oversight, not religious intolerance, discrimination or any other nonsense. There are a couple reasons why we do not cover private/parochial school sports in any great depth, and one of those reasons is one followed by most hometown news organizations these days -- only a small percentage of private/parochial school students are actually from the same community in which they go to school, generally about 10 percent. That reason alone means we are going to put more effort into covering our public school sports over private school. If you're going to point to other regional news publications, well they devote a lot of resources to sports coverage and have very dedicated and broader interest followings in that regard, we do not. And Dorothy, thank you for your reasonable response.

I would hope you give these kids their due in the future and not hide their accomplishments. They deserve the coverage!
