Letter: Disparities at play in high school athletics

Another high school football season has concluded in Iowa, and once again the parochial schools in classes 4A and 3A; with their unlimited budgets and their ability to recruit players at will from neighboring states, if they so choose, emerged victorious. (Yawn.)

It is difficult for me to comprehend how the larger public schools around the state can remain competitive for a state championship when the rules and conditions are so heavily stacked against them.
