Girls team shows remorse after 100-0 win

(01-23) 04:00 PST Dallas --

A Texas high school girls basketball team on the winning end of a 100-0 game has a case of blowout remorse.

Now officials from the winning school say they are trying to do the right thing by seeking a forfeit and apologizing for the margin of victory.

In a statement Thursday on the Covenant School's Web site, the head of school said, "It is shameful and an embarrassment that this happened."

Last week Covenant, a private Christian school in Dallas, defeated Dallas Academy 100-0. Covenant was up 59-0 at halftime.

A parent who attended the game said Covenant continued to make three-pointers - even in the fourth quarter. She praised the Covenant players but said spectators and an assistant coach were cheering wildly as their team edged closer to 100 points.

"I think the bad judgment was in the full-court press and the three-point shots," said Renee Peloza, whose daughter plays for Dallas Academy. "At some point, they should have backed off."

Dallas Academy coach Jeremy Civello told the Dallas Morning News that the game turned into a "layup drill," with the opposing team's guards waiting to steal the ball and drive to the basket. Covenant scored 12 points in the fourth quarter and "finally eased up when they got to 100 with about four minutes left," he said.

Dallas Academy has eight girls on its varsity team and about 20 girls in its high school. It is winless over the last four seasons. The academy boasts of its small class sizes and specializes in teaching students struggling with "learning differences," such as short attention spans or dyslexia.

"They showed much more character than the coach that allowed that score to get out of hand," said Edd Burleson, the director of the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools. "It's up to the coach to control the outcome."

At a shootaround Thursday, several Dallas Academy players said they were frustrated during the game but felt it was a learning opportunity. They also said they are excited about some of the attention they are receiving from the loss, including an invitation from Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban to see an NBA game from his suite.

"Even if you are losing, you might as well keep playing," said Shelby Hyatt, a freshman on the team. "Keep trying, and it's going to be OK."

because you have a learning disability doesnt mean you should be treated any differently (well as far as this is concerned)...that means they just have to work that much harder to be the best at what they do...

i'm glad, because i'd love for someone to explain to me the merit and logic of a full-court press in a game when you're up 96-0 with 5 minutes to go.

I don't know how this team is coached, but treating them like they can actually win can be a start. I don't believe in babying someone because of a disability they can't learn to be in the world with "non-disabled" people by being coddled. Of course the physical or learning challenges has to be addressed as well. AGAIN! I REPEAT I don't know how they were coached!

add and dyslexia do not necessarily mean that u r physically challenged, especially in the case of ADD.
did'ja miss the part about it being a tiny specialized school?

what kind of team do you think u can put together out of a population of 20?

and, please again, tell me the merit and logic behind running a full-court press when the score is 96-0 :polling:
