I think the coach should not be able to make baskeball players run on cross country and then still practice basketball. Scott, if you can read, then you need to either let them run and wait until the season is over to practice basketball, or go practice bb and stop making them do both. Good grief, let them have a life.

Two state championships in basketball for Bowlin and Richey and your questioning how they run their teams. Cross Country is a great way to get in shape and find out if players have any guts. The problem with society today is everybody wants to take the easy way out at Tech no one on the basketball team or cross country team is taking the easy way. Coach Bowlin and Coach Richey know that you have to work for what you get and their record shows it works.

Okay, you also have to look at it from a scheduling perspective. Why would you have them in a class the first semester and then pull them out second semester for them to have basketball. Just have the whole year in a sport at that time to make thing easier. Plus it keeps them in shape. I don't know of any that don't want to do it. If they don't, there is a way to get out of it.

Lol i can not believe u guys are talking about this, the kids should be running and doing extra things if they want to be good, the people commenting on here negative about do your kids ever say they want to play in college, I can promise u that the work outs are way harder, and there is always some kid out. There that is working just that much harder. The object is to be bigger,faster, stronger. I guess you all should have went to school to be a coach, it cracks me up when parents think they know something, cheer for the team, cheer for your kid, leave tje rest for the coach people
