the picture of the boys basketball team be there in place of Hickey? He didn't earn the honor the boys did. Maybe this assuages his trip to South Korea.
Remember, in order to win a culmulative 3.97 that does not mean every player is a rocket scientist...they could have loaded up on PE, woodshop and basket weaving although I am sure there are some players who deserve academic kudos. This district is in panic mode...

Agree with query about photo of Hickey, but let's give some congrats to the student/athletes for getting the job done in the classroom, as well as on the court. Got to add that the praise heaped on Coach Nachtrieb was a little excessive though.

get a life... You are a sad sad person if the only thing you can take from this article is to criticize the students for what classes they took. Which you have no way of knowing or proving.

I did not critize the boys if you reread what I said. There are some that deserve academic accolades but then there are others who do not which is part of the make-up of a cumulative 3.97 GPA. if you did not glean that from what i wrote then you must be the 3.9 GPA student that majored in underwater basketweaving. Not a sad person just realistic.

"that does not mean every player is a rocket scientist...they could have loaded up on PE, woodshop and basket weaving..."
this sure looks like criticism to me. You are talking about kids. You then make a statement about the district which alludes to your dislike of them. Makes it look like you think that this district sucks and so they are hyping up the kids' academic achievements. Just makes you look a little foolish is all. Even if you understand the technical side of a cumulative GPA, as if nobody else does, keep your snide remarks to yourself. You seem like type of person who would armchair qb others from the safety of hiding behind your keyboard and computer screen. Instead of saying, well they probably just all took shop and art class and aren't actually smart, how about you offer some praise. I didn't realize that high school kids in extra curricular activities needed to be taking advanced courses to make the cut for you. Like I said, you are a sad individual who has nothing better to do then pass judgment on kids.

Stop attacking and start macking....
As in, start ponying up the classes they took and their grades in these classes....
Until you do, then this is an empty argument, with both sides relying on stereotypes rather than facts.....
The person who pointed out that they may have all been taking gimme classes has a fair point. Without any evidence otherwise, they may have.....
So don't blame the messenger if the schools didn't a snow job sale, or the reporter did a lousy job of reporting......
The truth will out....
