The Joplin Globe offers an update on the High School sports programs with JHS teams face summer of adjustments
“We don’t have anything left,” Miller said. “It was a total loss. Most of our stuff was in the garage/storage shed up by the soccer field and it was wiped out. Even the stuff inside, down in the cage in the high school, we haven’t been able to get in there to see if anything is salvageable.”
That means Miller and the Eagles are borrowing from other schools for the time being. But by the time fall rolls around, they’ll need their own gear.
“We’re very fortunate and blessed that area schools have been so gracious,” Miller said. “But it’s going to be just like starting a program from scratch. We have to make a wish list for uniforms and sweat suits, bags, socks, goals, nets, balls. We have to get up and running.”
What are we going to do about this folks?
