    Judge Comment: The reporter took readers inside the comings and goings of the teams covered. Readers were offered more than just the top players of the game. Most of the time it worked, but there were some inelegant and awkward moments that lacked context within the entry, particularly the parent/coach disagreement in the first story of the entry.
