I would like to see Patch ask ask more High school coaching questions, such as: 1. Why is the girls Basketball program so successful right now? 2. Why is the boys program stuggling? 3. What is the philosiphy of our new head Football coach? 4. How do we have a stud Wrestling team every every year? 5. Girls Softball and mens Baseball get better every years, Why? And I'm sure alot more sports the peolpe of Hartland would like to know about without going directly to the coaches. This is my main soarce of news in Hartland. Patch you are doing a great job.
