Intercepted Letter To Sports Wriiter Chad Smith: Charleston Gazette Mr. Smith,

Read your wrestling article and made sure to scan through it to Region 4, Class AA-A.

I was shocked and amazed when you stated the only ranked team in the regional was Point Pleasant, ranked eighth in the state.

Being a Calhoun native I found the shocking part was that the Calhoun Red Devils, currently ranked fourth in the state, were not even mentioned.

Also not mentioned were Red Devil wrestlers Justin Ashley (currently top-ranked in the state at 130) and Eric Metz (undefeated and top-ranked in the state at 152).

The Red Devils also have a fourth-ranked wrestler, two fifth-ranked wrestlers, a sixth-ranked wrestlers and two-seventh-ranked wrestlers.

Errors of omission happen, I understand that. But when you omit the top-ranked team in the regional and the team that should easily win that regional ... well, that's a real big omission.

Thanks for reading this.
