Fractured English

I have long maintained that most local sports reporters could not pass 5th grade English. Here is another example.

The Sanford Herald, July 6. In an article about a local high school football team, this reporter wrote "The Jackets lost much of their offensive weapons from a team that made a deep playoff run last season to graduation,..." SAY WHAT! I never knew that playoffs were involved in high school graduations. How does this work? Does the winning team get to graduate and the loser stay another year? If you lose in the first round of the playoffs do you have to stay in school even longer? Somebody explain this to me.
