San Juan Islander Sports Editor covered the game and will have a complete story later this weekend.

By the way, we are looking for stringers and/or interns who are interested in covering any of the various high school sports teams. Unfortunately the positions are unpaid except for the fame :) and experience gained.

If you are interested in applying, please send a sample story of a real or fictitious game to editor@sanjuanislander.com. Please include sports in the subject line. Thanks.
