Sounds like the gymnastic team will be replaced with the drinking team.

I went to school with this coach. I'm sorry to hear that she used bad judgment with these kids, but having known her back then, it doesn't surprise me very much.

Please don't lump all teachers into this category. 99% of all teachers would never consider such a thing. Every profession has people who make terrible mistakes but it doesn't mean that's the norm.

Where was this kind of coach when I was in school? You would not believe what we went through to get a few beers back then!

As far as I can see, this lady is not a teacher, nor according to the Dept. of Ed. does she have a teaching license. This decision was her's, not all teachers. Why should all teachers be lumped together? She represents herself, let us hold her accountable.

Ya know, kids will get booze without the help of teachers or coaches. Why would a coach ruin her whole life by providing alcohol to kids?
Bud Light please

Will she deliver alcohol as well as just serving it? If so, I'd like to place a request and I promise to tip well.....cold case of bud light please.:)

With all the beer commercials on T.V. our kids are being taught it is all right to drink the stuff. Why there is no harm in it, not like the hard stuff. Ha, just ask a mother whose child has been killed after drinking beer at a party or someones home.
It is funny we got rid of the cigarettes, but don't touch the alcohol. Which kills many more and a lot of them are innocent of not having taken a drink.

Regrettably, many in the gymnastics community aren't surprised either.

This confirms that gymnastics is the diabolical gateway to drunkenness and the full array of vices.

So stupid. Criminal charges are needed. A gymnastic team is not. Spend the money elsewhere. Wonder what our beloved "Press" will have to say. Probably just more griping about a parochial school (Brebeuf) winning the girls basketball title.

Im thinking this coach couldnt find friends her own age to get wasted with, and obviously couldnt get over the fact she was no longer a 'highschooler'. LAFFIN Grow up!

What a limp-wristed world we live in. While it wasn't the smartest thing to do, giving booze to teens isn't the end of the world. Most of them are doing far worse on their own.
