Remember that “SPECIAL!” insert in Sunday’s Palm Beach Post about our little 6-square-mile City! “Hmmm. Pardon me, Sir. Where is West Palm?”

Well. Guess what. There was another special section in the paper that day you probably missed about our City’s athletes. Learn more about that below.
Featured on the back cover: Meet the iconic Mr. Greg Rice during Our Centennial Year in 2013.

Remember that 12-page “SPECIAL KEEPSAKE SERIES” delivered on Sunday, March 26th, in The Palm Beach Post? Do you still have it? I DO!!!

However, there was more special news that day about the little City of Lake Worth you may have thrown into the recycle bin and didn’t realize what you missed.

Along with that Sunday print edition there was a non-too-turtle-friendly plastic bag which included coupons, advertisements from big-box retailers and pharmacies, the weekly 24-page TV Post in 7- or 8-point type no one can read without a magnifying glass, and there was something else in that voluminously-stuffed plastic bag as well:

The “All-Area Teams” Post insert, Section 5 titled, “Special Pullout Bonus”, 6 pages in all:


So, if you never bother with the coupons and know how to use a cable remote for the TV schedule and just threw that plastic bag away, you missed the names of these Lake Worth athletes in the following sports:

Boys Basketball
  • Joshua Rathell, Senior, Guard
  • Marques Spann, Junior, Guard
  • Honorable Mention: Jadon Randell
Girls Basketball
  • Klara Felder, Senior, Guard
  • Honorable Mention: Markadala Theophile
Girls Weightlifting
  • Stephanie Etlenvil, Senior
  • Hoxley Richet, Senior
  • Honorable Mention: Amber Hamm
No Lake Worth athletes were mentioned in these sports:
  • Boys Soccer
  • Girls Soccer
  • Boys Wrestling/Weightlifting
Would that be because facilities are not available, not in good enough condition to be used, or the funds not available from the Palm Beach County School District for supplies and equipment? Draw your own conclusions.

Congratulations to all our City of Lake Worth Athletes!
