Shame or Game?

Micah Grimes, the coach of Covenant School of Dallas, was reportedly fired after refusing to apologize for a 100 - 0 victory of his girls’ basketball team over Dallas Academy last week. He insists that it is ridiculous to apologize “for a wide-margin victory when my girls played with honor and integrity.” However, it seems school officials disagreed. School officials were quoted as saying, "This clearly does not reflect a Christlike and honorable approach to competition.”

Dallas Academy only has 20 girls in its high school and is winless over the last four seasons. The school includes students with “learning differences,” such as short attention spans or dyslexia.
