Great holiday tournament showing for our basketball "programs". Do father and past all-star player coaches give our program credibility...seems not! Great "program" Elledge, Harris, Portell, Brauns and Altodonna.

First off, I get so tired of seeing highland athletics bashed. Highland is a good town and there are good kids, but the work ethic and competitiveness of kids is a little to be desired. Everyone wants to bash coaches, I get so sick of seeing coaches bashed. People didn't like Strong, now you don't like Elledge, all Harris did was win a regional..IF only everyone who bashed a coach, could actually do it. The way society is going, you won't get quality people to coach..

Interesting post. I think people who bash coaches don't see entire picture. First off, Harris did win a regional. Beat mater dei. Something Elledge couldn't do. Yet not Elledge fault either. He doesn't miss free throws players do.
Strong took the boys program over at a time when no one wanted the job, where the average number of wins per year was 7 and won 3 conferences and a regional.
Elledge record speaks for itself. I don't think people in highland truly understand what it really takes to be a sports town and the coaches become the scapegoats. Jmo

I always thought Elledge was a good coach, but this year I think he has the family blinders on. His oldest kid is a pretty average player and while the rest of the seniors and juniors get sat or miss starts for mistakes they make, his son gets all the time he wants while usually making more mistakes and playing lazy defense.
It has become so obvious to us fans that he has to recognize this....right?

MVC is terrible this year. Our record oustisde of the terrible MVC 6-11. We are to that good. Elledge has done a great job, especially with his boys.
The rest of Highland is lucky he only had 2 boys and not 5.

What happened to the HHS team last night, losing to CM in their first regional game? Accoring to the post dispatch we were outscored every quarter. CM is not that good. Anyone see the game? What happened?

The boys basketball team did not play well against CM. Good year overall for the bulldogs. 17 wins and an outright conference championship for a team that was not overly talented. Players and coaches all worked hard for a successful season. Great job to all.

To all the "concerned patents" out there.....future looks pretty bright for the Bulldogs!
