High School Basketball Coach Gets Fired After A 100 - 0 Blow Out

The coach of a Texas high school basketball team that beat another team 100-0 was fired after his team won a basketball game with the score: 100 - 0. On the same day that he was fired, he sent a statement to the local newspaper stating that he would not apologize "for a wide-margin victory when my girls played with honor and integrity."

Kyle Queal, the headmaster for Covenant School, said in the Dallas Morning News online edition that he could not answer if the firing was a direct result of coach Micah Grimes' e-mail disagreeing with administrators who called the blowout "shameful."

I have to side with the coach on this issue. I grew up playing sports, and I was always taught that you always play to the end!!! Regardless of how much you are loosing by, you still give it all your all. And if you are winning, why would you be the team to gie up?

FYI, Dallas Academy has eight girls on its varsity team and about 20 girls in its high school. It is winless over the last four seasons. The academy boasts of its small class sizes and specializes in teaching students struggling with "learning differences," such as short attention spans or dyslexia, none of which attribute to poor basketball playing. In fact, most of the basketball players that I know have poor attention spans lol...
