If they would've got these other players to play with the 3 Allen girls that quit, then they would be even better! So, why didn't butcher and the coach get these high schoolers to play with the Allen girls?

Who cares except for parents of the girls? Girls basketball is like watching paint dry. If the win or lose every game it doesn't matter.
why?

Really???anyone who has watched the grade school girls play should know that the high school isn't better off with them leaving..the prestonsburg girls program could've had a great team if they cared enough to beg those 3 high school girls before the season started.they waited till they didn't have enough players to play before they went out begging..I would've loved to see the girls program be success but that's not gonna happen..not untill prestonsburg coaches learns to treat ALL girls with respect..

What goes around comes around doesn't it Coach Newsome? Jealousy, spitefulness and backstabbing in your personal life can come back to haunt you in everything. You never know who iis friend or foe as many people you have screwed over and/or screwed. You need to take good look at your morals. You are suppose to be setting a good example for the girls you are coaching. No wonder you can't keep a teaching job and have no friends.

that is very disrespectable of you highrise_local to the girls that quit, to say the team is better off now. The girls that quit is the future for PHS but if I remember right one of the parents from Allen was told that only can start 5 player and 5 player is all they need this was said by the assist principal of the school, Well we see most of the Allen girls at AC now and some will be at Magoffin County. The PHS coach better stop listerning to her clock keeper and try to keep these girls at PHS.

April Newsome doesn't know shit about basketball.Hopefully you parents of the young girls will get them out of her program.The administration could care less about what goes on in girls basketball,basically because it doesn't involve a Derossett.Newsome definitely has a character problem,but she was only hired for 2 yrs,for reasons you will see at the end of those two yrs.Get your kids to a program that cares while you can!!

I usually don't post on here but someone said there was a post about me. I want to first off put the end to any rumor that I have anything against Coach Newsome or want her job. Since my daughter began playing at PHS I have volunteered my time to keep stats, announced the games, ran the clock and volunteered to work all 3 days during the Christmas Tournament from 11:00 am to midnight every night. If I didn't want to see her be successful why would I volunteer my time.
Second, I want to eliminate the idea that I had the girls to quit. Since 12/26/12 eight girls have left the team. Four middle school girls and 4 high school girls. At no time did I encourage any girl to quit the team. In fact I encourage all the girls to continue to play after they left.
Third, at no time did I disrespect the girls or coaches that played for PHS. I did yell like every other parent and fan does at every game, to pass the ball, quit shooting threes, attack the basket and run their offense.
Fourth, my daughter left the team because she was tired of being beaten handily. I can only assume that is why the other girls left as well. I agree with Highrise Local, although these girls are good players, these girls were not ready to start high school varsity. They had a 3 win and 14 loss record with six of the losses by 40 or more points (40, 41, 42, 54, 56, 57 points). Simply put middle school girls and freshman can not simple compete against juniors and seniors.
Fifth, when my daughter left the team their was still 9 players left. It wasn't until the next day we found out that 3 other girls quit that night.
In the future, if you have questions, please don't listen to the people on the street as they apparently don't know. I wish Coach Newsome and the Lady Blackcats the best of luck the rest of the season.
....and as for you Mr.Coach. Pull your head out of your split and quit posting on topix. Your above that. I would fire you on the stop if I was your boss.

Why is it disrespectful?(that's how you spell it) The truth is the truth, if you don't like it, don't reply. It's disrespectful that the girls from Allen quit in the middle of the season and walked out on their teammates...or is it just how they are taught these days and that's ok? A normal parent would tell their child quitting is not an option if you have already started. But parents baby their kids and everybody else is at fault.

Yes the Girls program is better off without all the girls that quit, and if you think that's disrespectful...then lets hear about your perfect life.

I think high rise is a douche, but he is 100 percent right. You all need to get lives. At least bitch about the beans being too cold at the Mexican restaurant and not girls basketball. Who cares?

Is it possible that the parents,coaches,fans,adminestr atrs etc. get togeather and agree that united we win and divided we lose. The girls seem fine with each other. just a little food for thought. I think everyone means well but everybody needs to get on the same page and you got yourself a winner.

They have 11 games left. The day the girls quit they were 3-12, The last game makes the NEW TEAM 1-0.

So, with that said at the end of the season my statement will hold truth as saying they were better without the quitters.

And when they do win, I am sure you will have something else to say to back-up your reasoning on why the Allen girls are the Connecticut Sun.
