MPA panel denies Wells High tennis player’s petition
Rosemary Campanella won't be allowed to become a full member of the Kennebunk team.
The Maine Principals’ Association’s Tennis Committee decided against recommending rules changes sought by a Wells High freshman who wants to play as a full-fledged member of the Kennebunk tennis team.
The student, Rosemary Campanella, filed a petition with the committee to change the way tennis is classified as an MPA sport.
As an educated in Maine for 30 years, I just don't understand the MPA's thinking with this case. Why wait until next year to change all sports to "cooperative teams". Aren't they in this for the student athletes? Why not let this tennis player play on a team to experience the "team experience"? I just don't get it. Rick Coyne, Wells
