The boys smith county soccer team is 6-1 in the district and 7-2 overallthat is better than the boys and girls basketball team. Yet the soccer boys team gets no recognition in the news paper.So I was wondering if anyone else noticed this besides me.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO GET NOTICED? THE TEAM HAS A LOT OF HEART. ITS IS A SHAME THAT THEY CANT GET ANY RECOGNITION IN OUR LOCAL PAPER. THE KIDS AND COACHES HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB AND FOR SURE NEED TO BE RECOGNIZED FOR IT! BUT THEIR SPORT JUST ISNT IMPORTANT ENOUGH I GUESS?

I just got home from one of their games. It was pretty cool, people should go more often.

the problem is the crappy ass principle at carthage thinks he is god and the school board bows down to him the soccer program wont grow with a dictator driving the boat.

Isn't this one of the first, if not the very first winning season for the soccer program?? Congratulations on the accomplishment!! Keep it up and good things will happen. The "crappy" pricipal/coach/dictator has put a winning program on the field for over a decade. They are now pretty self-sufficient and probably support the soccer team with money made from football gate $!! Good luck and continued success to the program, but I've always been taught "you catch more bees with sugar than sh*t."

as far as coverage, I don't believe the paper has people to cover all the sports and relies on coaches, etc in some sports to turn in news & stories. I've read the credits on a lot of that baseball stuff and it's not a "staff" person.

maynard supports nothing the only help the soccer team gets is from the rec league, maynard dont like soccer and will not support it. there are just as many good players in gordonsville but napolian at gordonsville high school does not like soccer either so the poor gordonsville kids have to transfer schools just to play. and nobody gets money from the football gates not basketball not baseball, he makes the band march on blacktop so they dont mess up his field. come on man really!!!!!!!

You sound like you know. I'm guessing you may not know what you think you do. I stopped by a band practice last year and they were practicing in the field behind the indoor facility. I'm almost positive football $ supports more than football. I don't like soccer myself, but know that good folks have put in time and effort to get it better here. I still contend that sustained success will be noticed, supported and grow just as our football programs have been and are now.

The money from the football program supports nothing but football. All teams must support themselves!

I am pretty sure that you don't know what you think you do! Unless you have tried to get money from the school to support another activity, you don't need to respond.

maynard is a good principle from what i gather but he just dont like anything except football just like every other football coach carthage has ever had all i am saying is we need to grow, these kids need more sports to keep them busy and out of trouble like girls volley ball i dont like it but i am glad the girls got another sport other than basket ball and softball

people shouldnt blame it on maynord.so what if he dont like soccer.he is the reason schs has about 2000 people at the football games.he has built his legacy so he should reap the rewards.we could bring mayfield back and have about 50 people in the stands.im not knocking soccer bu heavens how much money does it take to support a soccer team.a shirt and a pair of shorts.worry about something else

you are way off your rocker the only people at football games because of maynard is his family are you saying the full stands over the last 30 years is because maynard built a legacy he didnt build nothing he may be carrying on a legacy but he didnt build a thing and yes we can blame maynard all school sports are ok'd by the principle and only the PRINCIPLE so yea we can blame maynard

well actually its spelled 'principal'.well he must have an awful big family.the only time the stands have been that full is when rankin was there.plus all the playoff games they go to because he is a good coach.its not worth getting upset about.you have your opinion and i have mine.good luck to all smith county teams from carthage and gordonsville,have a nice day.

The only reason at least 1-2 full sections of people are in those stands is because band parents & families support their kids. If the band families stayed home, there be a lot of empty seats.

All 40 of those kids?? I don't guess the 85 football kids have as many supporters. Maybe next year we could have a band competition and have football at intermission. LOL The football team has butts in the seats because they are a winning program. Everyone else is their in a support capacity to the team. The band has fallen way off in recent years and is only a shell of what it once was. I'm sure with hard work, they will make it back. Just as the soccer team has started to place a winner out there. Keep doing that and all the due accolades will come. As for now, let's all support one another.

I'm excited to see anyone talking about this. These boys are doing an amazing job, playing awesome soccer, and making us all so proud. Hopefully they will do well in the post season and we can get some folks to come watch.

This is a great sport so glad SCHS has this here now gives more kids a chance to play a sport. The coaches r great with these teams Boys and Girls. These kids love the sport so much the girls are training right now for their season in the fall and only because they want to not because the coaches asked them to. The coaches do it for the love of the game and it shows in how well their team is doing.Bless the boys soccer team and i hope they come bring those distict games here and ppl of smith county go out and watch you never know u just might be watching the next biggest thing to hit the soccer world...Good Luck Boys Make Smith County proud i know some of already are
