Softball team scandal

Recommended Posts

It's so sad to see what has happened to the softball program. Just a few years ago it was an up and coming team that should have won a national tournament title.

If they violated the players rights by not allowing her to eat according to her religion, that's wrong and the head coach should have tried to make amends rsther than kick her off the team. The administration seems to have handled this poorly and has doubled down since lawyers have got involved.

I know it doesn't attract tons of fan, but it's an embarrassment and probably makes it harder to hire a decent coach.  And it doesn't inspire confidence in would be recruits to see how coaches and admins handled one of their players.

I wish the team the best in sorting this out.

Appears allot of the blame should go to the player with what I have read about the situation. Other players are defending the coaches in this.

Coach was wrong benching her for the season  Plus I wouldn't let my daughter play for her - especially with what I hear is going on.

there is more to this story than what you know.  The AD handled this all wrong.  and well the player has a history of causing problems.

Seems there's wrong on all sides.  Yes the young lady may have been difficult but if she's observing lent they should have let her eat her food.  The administration handled this badly too.  They ignored this until it got to a point of no return. They trampled the player then the coaches.

 

This is sad. Players are leaving. I have no confidence in the new A.D.  Looks like they're making up the appeals process as they go. 

I'm really worried about this.

    • My publishing company is months away from releasing  a beautiful book celebrating the photographic origins of the great baseball culture in SE Texas. The book is  mainly comprised of photos dating to before 1930 and is organized on a county by county basis. The archive of images is astounding in every way. The images will be enhanced with vintage baseball imagery and graphics. The largest share of profits from sales of the book, on a per book basis, will primarily benefit youth baseball groups throughout the region. If you or someone you know would like to contribute images for use in the publication, please PM me or you can write to me at [email protected]
    • Common opponents in district to this point... PA 247-145 Ned 259-159 Should be a good matchup! 
    • For District 22 this year the goal is to make it to Huntsville.  Making it to the Regional final or beyond is gravy, we'll talk about it if it happens.   A look at the brackets reveals that winning the district makes that goal a lot more attainable.  The runner up will likely face Yates in the second round and then La Marque in the third.  A tough proposition. The winner of 22 will have have a much easier road.  W22 will have to contend with W17, W18 and W21 in it's sub bracket on the road to Huntsville.  Likely candidates are Huffman from 21, either Connolly or China Spring from 18 and either Waxahachie Life or Alvarado from 17.  Baring upsets W22 will face W21 in the third round.  W21 will be the weakest district winner in the sub bracket.  Then in round four W22 faces the survivor of W17 vs. W18.  So if favorites prevail throughout the sub bracket it will be Connolly verses our winner in the fourth round. Connolly is very good, better than either Silsbee or HJ, but that game is winnable by either.  Actually they didn't play the preseason schedule that Silsbee faced.  As far as ranked opponents go they lost to Liberty Hill by 15 and to Seminole by 11.
