Thanks to Portage for athletic training

To the editor:

Once again, on behalf of the Dollar Bay-Tamarack City Area Schools community, parents and athletes I would once again like to say a special thank you to the Portage Medical Group for providing cost free physicals for our student-athletes this past year. The staff is awesome, without question we are all aware of the man-power, time, energy and effort it took the Portage Medical Group to perform these physicals and perform such a tremendous service.

The effort of the trainers who are present at our athletic contests throughout the year is awesome. Like in most years, I saw injuries occur on the football field, basketball court, at cross-country events or at track meets.

It was so assuring to see the Portage staff at our games and track events to take care of those injuries. As a parent, coach, AD or administrator it doesn’t get any better than that. You and your staff are terrific and have been wonderful the past seven years.

Please let the doctors, nurses, staff and anyone else involved know how grateful we are for their kindness, effort and enthusiasm they show for our are kids everyday. You are all fantastic people.
