Mr Mark E. Towner it was just a question, no disrespect to Hunter High I
understand what you are saying I also am from the west side .
I'm the JV Head Coach here at Hunter High and would like to respond to the
rather offensive comments from shakes and Speak English.First to
Shakes, you are right those are our practice uniforms. The players choose to
where what uniforms they want for their games. We are a very large (2100
students) school, but the economic situation here at Hunter classifies us a low
income. It is very difficult for players or their families to pay for uniforms,
and the school because of fee waivers has no money in the Basketball budget
either. We make due with reversible uniforms as that is all we can afford. I
assume you must reside on the snobby East side.Now to you "Speak
English". I assume from your handle that you are proactive on the
immigration front. Hunter High is a minority school with nearly 60% split
between Hispanic, Pacific Islander, and other minorities. School population
determines if you are a 5A, 4A, 3A etc school here in Utah. We teachers here at
Hunter and for that matter in the Granite school district have no say who shows
up in our classrooms or tries out for athletics.
Region 2 is a complete joke! 5 of the 6 teams have losing records, and the 1st
place team (Taylorsville) lost by 13 points to Region 3's worst (and
winless in region) team. For the second year in a row, whichever
region matches up with Region 2 will get automatic tickets to the quarterfinals
just like last year. This region would be awful by 4A standards too, and most
teams would be bottom feeders at the 3A level. They are a combined 21-51 outside
of region play. C'mon UHSAA, put some effort into realignment
next time around. Herriman is in last place in Region 4 and would go undefeated
in this ridiculous region!
What is up with your Uniforms Hunter they look like practice uniforms.
