The teams that I played on in high school never did that well. I'd like to think I was a big part of that. Wait, that's not a good thing. We saw our share of lopsided losses which were the games that I actually played in (towards the end). However, we never suffered a defeat like Dallas Academy girls basketball team did.
Covenant Lady Knights: 100
Dallas Academy Bulldogs: 0
Ouch. That's not just running up the score. That's putting the score on the space shuttle and blasting off.
Following the Jan. 13 blowout, Covenant head coach Micah Grimes has been the target of criticism calling the dominant victory "shameful and an embarrassment." The harshest words came from his own boss. "This clearly does not reflect a Christ-like and honorable approach to competition," said Covenant headmaster Kyle Queal.
The Dallas Academy
, which specializes in teaching students with learning differences like dyslexia, fields a varsity team of 8 girls from its high school of 20 girls. The school accepted an apology from Mr. Queal.
Mr. Grimes refused to agree with the apology. He was fired last week. (National Post article
Was it right for Mr. Grimes to lose his job over this? Is a lopsided victory like the Covenant-Dallas Academy game an example of "un-Christ-like" competition?
