  • Ms. Wilson,

    I attended the varsity volleyball game on Tuesday night. The match aganist College Heights was fun to watch however your student body needs instruction in the fine art of good sportsmanship. Respect for the officials decisions is not shown by booing! Using deafening noise to distract the opposing teams server is disrespectful. Your head coach seems to think that this is the way to host a visiting team. He encouraged this behavorior. When asked about this after the game, he indicated that teaching the students about disrespectful behavior would lessen their interest in the game and he would lose his crowd. As a former player of organized sports, this attitude saddens me. Team sports administered properly can teach the players and student fans how to respect authority and how to show courtesy to other people on and off the court.
