@ Rebounds&Steals, maybe you read my comment wrong or I wrote it wrong,
cause my main beef, is qty. of students available. We can coach a team of 3
great girls, and the balance of decent, but when a school has a pool of students
to choose from so much greater than yours, and can field 5 great players with a
bench full of decent players, I think the hurdle you have to cross is so much
greater. Coaching is huge, and that I agree on, but I would rather have 500
girls at tryouts, than 100.
Classification Excuse Void - See YouTube Julian Newman a 5th grade Varsity
To "Ask me if I care" Though I agree schools should be classified
appropriately by number of students enrolled; I would have to disagree with
using "classification" as an excuse for the "quality" of the
athletes or the outcome of a game. (Your pretty much calling your own athletes
untalented.) If "individuals" are taught or "coached" to
be their best (which includes physical - conditioning & tactics, social -
works well with others even in disagreement including small or large groups and
even the opposing team, coaches, and referees, and mental - self confidence
knowing effort equals outcome) then where they live, or go to school has no
influence on their athletic talents or abilities. Coaching a "team" that
has determined, "individually enhanced" athletes whether 1A or a million
A is going to come out on top. It's what the individual is able to take
away in experience that makes them a winner. But in direct response to
classification as the excuse for who plays in the championship game, a well
coached "team" will more often than not, be playing in that game.
The real State Championship for 2A girls is being played for 2nd and 3rd place.
Parowan and Kanab, as there are 2 3A teams playing for our 2A championship
Richfield and Emery.. it's time they put some people in their real
classification. You can do it in football, but not in all the other sports.
Give me a break Utah.....
Is there anywhere we can listen to this game like a radio station. I cant watch
it on here it keeps buffering so I see like 2 seconds.
Regarding the Lyman sisters and their "individual" scoring -
they're just following coaching ingrained reflexes. They may not be
credited to the points scored but most of the "teams" points
wouldn't occur without the rebounds and steals by the Lyman sisters.
I'm sure if they dared to be spontaneous they would be in double digits
across the stat sheets.
Am I missing something or are the girls games starting late?
