A private Christian high school girls basketball team from Dallas, TX, won their recent game with feared crosstown rivals, the dreaded Dallas Academy by 100 points.
Except now that the story is out, the Covenant School wants to forfeit their hard-fought win because the margin of victory was "unchristian." Not to mention an embarrassing.
It seems that the Dallas Academy fields a team of 8 girls, out of a student body with only 20 girls in its high school; Covenant, according to their website, has 134 pupils in grades 7-12.
You would think that someone--anyone--would have thought of the "unchristian", even the more pedestrian "unsportsmanlike" angle at half time, when the scored was a mere 59-0.
As one parent so astutely noticed, ""I think the bad judgment was in the full-court press and the 3-point shots. At some point, they should have backed off." Ya think??
Then, again, reports were that "spectators and an assistant coach were cheering wildly as their team edged closer to 100 points." Damn that 6th man!
Since the story broke, the girls from the Dallas Academy have been invited by Mark Cuban to watch a Mavericks game in his luxury suite. Yep, there's a role model for those girls.
Apparently, the girls are not dwelling on the loss and have moved on. That reflects great character and a positive attitude.
Or, it could be that the Dallas Academy, as the article states, " specializes in teaching students struggling with "learning differences," such as short attention spans or dyslexia."
Maybe the dyslexic ones thought the score was 0-100 and they won.
"In your face, bitch!"
