Peters Township Sits On The Fence
According to an article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, One of America's Great Newspapers, the Peters Township school board has denied a request by students to recognize fencing as an independent sport. This would have allowed the team members to use the school district's name for the purpose of participating in an upcoming regional playoff.
It certainly can't be about safety, as the Peters ice hockey team is recognized as an independent sport.
And now, for a roll call of the fence-sitters: Voting in favor of the request were Cindy Golembiewski, Lynn Erenberg, David Hvizdos and Julie Ann Sullivan. Dissenting were Thomas McMurray, Diane Ritter, Sue Smith and Mark Buzzatto. Board member John Stepusin was absent.
