What is going on with the girls' basketball team? I heard that 7 varsity players did not go out this year?

Probably not getting their way. They were not going to be the star or get on the varsity team. Kids today don't know how to just have a role on the team or work hard to get better. Alot of it is the parents fault.

Or it could be the fact that the coach is a bully and the players don't want to be yelled at all the time. Or the fact that the Varsity coach was sixth man off the bench of a losing basketball team and doesn't know what she is doing. Plus how do you get the job as a freshman basketball coach even though you have never stepped foot on a court as a player? It seems like CHS doesn't care to invest in girls sports like they do boys. They got a great boys basketball coach in Coach Kool and from what I hear an excellent Wrestling coach. Terry McKiddy knows basketball and should be running the whole program.

Bullying? I doubt it. Kids need yelled at. Go to a football practice sometime and witness some yelling. If the kids want to play then they need to put I the time and the effort. If they don't then I would be in there face too. Who cares if the coach was a state champ, bench warmer or never played. That has 0 to do with knowledge of the game

oh boo hoo hoo. the mean ole coach told players to run wind sprints. oh boo hoo hoo the meal ole coach told the players they were doing something wrong. cry me a freakin river.
There is ONE person in charge, and that is the head coach. Dont like how she does things then dont go out for basketball or take it up with the school board. Obviously, the players took the easy way out and turned into quitters. If these people quit over trivial crap like this, they have a very rude awakening ahead of them when they start working full time after their education.
Sounds like most of the problem is that their parents baby them too much.
Who cares if they quit. C-ya later! dont let the door hit you on the way out.

With cry babies like this, who the hell would WANT to be a girls coach. Probably why they had to beg someone to be a freshman coach.

It's okay to teach kids to be tough and competitive, it's also okay to "coach" loudly but it's not okay to "yell" at players. Have any if you been to a game? Have you seen the girls basketball team play? What kind of offense pulls your tall girls out of rebounding position and only utilizes 2/3's of the court, and denies players the ability to shoot from the outside? CHS girls basketbal has the ability to be very competitive. There are many good female student athletes in the school system and coming up in the school system. I just hope the school system/board has put the right people in the right positions and that those people want to do what's best for the student/athlete and the program not what boosts their own personal wishes....if one had an issue with a coach, where would one go first?

if one had an issue with a coach, I think one would go to the coach first.
and Coaches have been yelling at players as long as there have been coaches and players, just like parents and fans have been second guessing coaches since there were parents and coaches.
Congrats to the players still on the team! Good job realizing life isn't always free I-phones from mommy and spray on tans. The girls still with the team will go far in life after athletics.

Attention all parents... Stop making everything about YOU & YOUR child. I sit in the bleachers at the CHS games & CMS games and listen to you crazy parents. I've had enough! I support the coaches we have. First of all who are you to say. Have you coached? I know this much.. This is all starting because off the CRAZY group of girls parents that think they are going to be the BEST to ever grace the halls at CHS. First of all I will say they are talented players. But let's keep in mind they are in middle school. I won't let a group of crazy, out for yourself parents railroad another CHS coach. So listen up ladies you will have to take on more than the school board to win this battle. Let your kids play ball. Stay out of it. You guys would plow over a friend if it meant your kid could be a star. That's sad! All your doing is making it hard for our kids to ever be a team. They are out for themselves & have you their parents say they're the best & you can't be a team like that. They will get knocked down a few notches when they make it to CHS. So stop making it worse. Go Hornets!

Another CHS coach? So the middle schools' parents railroaded one coach and now they are trying to railroad another? How can middle school parents railroad a high school coach? So Chilli Fan, you have seen "them" play? They are talented? The forum was talking about high school players...I'm interested to know how a middle school team and their parents came into the picture? I hope there are talented kids who continue to move into high school and I have hope they know the definition of a team and remember the coach is the leader of the team....Go Hornets!

Did you apply for the coaching position when it was available? You all would really be having a shit fit if Rich Fairchild was still roaming the hardwood. Of course, he won games too. Maybe because his players respected him. But RESPECT isn't taught by parents anymore...kids are SOFT. Good luck coach Parkey..your dedication and will to see them succeed is evident. You call it "yelling", I call it PASSION.

No. The boys overachieved last year, sign of a good coach. They won't win 10 this year, not enough talent.

I was paying attention. I agreed with you regarding the boys record being a tribute to the coach. Then changed the subject. Sorry I wasn't clear.
