Rower wasn’t called fat

October 20, 2013
Parkersburg News and Sentinel

Angela Sims letter to the editor dated Oct. 14: "Too fat to be part of the local rowing club" is a total fabrication, bordering on slander. Her story, as she says, is "totally unbelievable" and absolute nonsense. The OVRC is trying to rebuild a failing PHS crew program. Why would we chase anyone away? In hopes these girls would stick with the program and see positive results, I told them exercise alone would not work for them. If they wanted to take advantage of the program to get in shape and lose some weight, they would also have to pay attention to diet. They were told to avoid sugary drinks, fast food and follow a healthy diet.
