A girls high school basketball game that finished with a score of 100-0 made headlines yesterday not just for its unusual score, but also for the way participants felt after–the coach from the losing side said he was proud of his team for playing hard, while officials from the winning school are calling their team’s actions “shameful” and asking to forfeit the win.Dallas Academy athletic director Jeremy Civello said after the game, “My girls never quit. They played as hard as they could to the very end.” Civello may have different expectations than many coaches because his girls team has never won a game in his four seasons at the school. But then again, his school has only 20 girls, eight of which are on his basketball team.Meanwhile the head of school at The Covenant School, the winning home team, said on the school’s website “it is shameful and embarrassing that this happened.”Moral of the story? Win, but don’t win by too much… The Dallas Academy boys team got a little bit of revenge doing just that, defeating Covenant 50-38.Full story from The Dallas Morning News
