I must say that I am thoroughly disappointed in this publication for allowing the article "Lady Knights show Bickleton exactly what's up" to be printed with false accusations.
I realize Corey Russell printed an apology, but the damage has already been done. We have been stereotyped as "hillbillies with bad sportsmanship."
I would now like to take this opportunity to invite Corey and anyone else who hasn't been to Bickleton to come to one of our home games. I am sure, if you are brave enough to grace us with your presence, you will find that our volleyball team does in fact have good sportsmanship, and community support as well.
Don't let the hills intimidate you. They are wheat fields. Yes, we have to go down a hill to do our grocery shopping, but that's about it.
Also, we are considered part of the "Lower Yakima Valley," just like Sunnyside.
