Lincoln County Students

LINCOLN COUNTY STUDENTS: Last year you won the team championship in our championship boxing tournament. You were all so very proud on the night of the finals when you upset the defending champions who attended Riverside High. Then you were disappointed when the school principal at that time would not allow you to display the trophy in the school trophy case. Since boxing is not a school sport.  I am not surprised at that action, although, I do not see the harm it would have done. You were further disappointed in January 2012 when the Board of Education rejected my request to hold an event in your school so you could demonstrate your skills in front of your hometown. I was also disappointed but I am not quitting.  I am more determined  than ever to find a place in Lincoln County for you to box even if it has to be in a farm field.  To date, not a single Lincoln County boxer has signed up to box March 2 & 3. Quitting is not the solution to disappointment and adversity! By quitting, you are simply giving up. I am asking you guys to defend your team title and show the "adults" that you are not quitters. Show them that you are young responsible adults and that you will be voting someday. The decision is yours to make and always be proud of what you accomplished last year!

Its a shame that The board wont let LCHS sponsor and hold the Hooks for Books boxing matches for our kids that want to box.Sports isnt just football,basketball,and,baseball .We have kids that do wanna box but some dont have the money or means for transportation to get all the way to Charleston.Its rediculous that kids have to get together and hold their own boxing matches at the Pee Wee field because the board is too selfish to sponsor our kids here in our own hometown.LCHS were the champions last years.Who's to say that our kids couldnt do it again with even more pride because theyre in their own territory.I agree with Mr.Toney wholeheartedly.If youre not going to show up to box then dont sign up because youre making Lincoln County look even worse.Like Mr Toney said,Youre only as good as your word.Come on people,support our kids for once instead of crooked politics. If anyone agrees with this let me and everybody else know by reposting.
