In this week’s print edition of SWoCo, we have photos from Hidden Valley’s home opener. (In a few weeks, we’ll also have photos from Cave Spring’s home opener, just in case you’re wondering.)
In fact, we have so many photos, we can’t fit them all into our print edition, so that’s why every week we call attention to all our online extras.
Of course, we’re not the only ones taking photos. So are many of you, so if you’re wondering why we don’t have photos of your team, or your sport, well, send ‘em on and we’ll be happy to help you show ‘em off to the world.
Until then, here’s our weekly list of online extras:
