Basketball Coach Fired

Posted on: January 28, 2009

basketballA recent contest between two high school girls’ basketball teams ended in a 100-0 victory for a school by the name of Covenant over another known as Dallas Academy. The overwhelming margin between the two teams saw the Covenant coach fired for unsportsmanlike conduct. The ironic part of the incident is that the Covenant school is a Christian school. The headmaster of Covenant, Queal, said that the way they won the game “does not reflect a Christ-like and honorable approach to competition.” For this reason, Covenant’s coach, Grimes, was fired. When approached about the victory, Grimes claimed to not regret the manner in which they won the game. Referring to the game, he said “my girls played with honor and integrity.” He had no regrets about the score. The Dallas Academy is a private school of only 20 students, many of who had disabilities. Their varsity basketball roster has only 8 people on it. On top of this, they have not been victorious in their last 4 seasons. The local papers praised the Dallas Academy for not giving up throughout the entire game.
