Im thinking we need a coaching change. Boys and girls always under achieve. Boys have had alot of talent over the years, and have had some success. But all the credit should go to the efforts put forth by the boys. They win to spite Kennedy. Girls teams have had some talent also, but lost to some sub par teams over the years. The SHL crown has eluded these girls for over two decades. That whole staff has ruined some good talent. Marty Adams would make a great head coach. Bring back Deanie Thompson for the girls. At least they played for him. Just my thoughts, what are yours?

my observation issue that they are stuck on having the hometown boys do all of their coaching. This is fine by us because we never have to consider Ripley a threat when we play them. Lol!! Its not just basketball, bit your whole sports program stinks.

Coach Kennedy is a hell of a coach and i would know because i play for him!! We dont lose because of him...Hes not on the court making us make bad decisions its up to us to go out there and get it taken care of! But i will let you know this we are a good team and none of you are goin to mess that up by hating on our coach because we dont do something right!!! Its pretty bad when you have adults that are too immature to say anything to his or our faces but you can come on here and hide your name and talk shit about anyone and everything even though you have no clue of what you are talking about but its whatever!!!

He has some support by the parents that are kissing hiney for their daughters playing time. Marty Adams would be perfect for coaching the girls. Perfect temperment and dimeanor.

I am going to say this because i have had some experience with Coach Kennedy coaching my son . I am NOT going to say when or my sons name but , He is a GREAT Coach and he DOES care about his boy , yes he wants them to win but he also wants them to have fun , I went through alot with my son and his injuries and he would make sure he is ok and if we ever needed anything he was right there helping with any situation that we were in , and as far as Coach Coleman , yeah he throws his fits but he only does that when them stubborn boys that think they know it all does not listen to what he is trying to ask them to do. so you must be upset because your kid either wasnt good enough to play or just had a mind of his own andthought he knew the game better than the coaches . I have heard BOTH coaches tell them we want this win but the main thing is to have fun , just get the job done , but they BOTH care about these kids

oh myy people ..... this is stupid... ravye dont kiss ass and you all just need to stop talking shit about good people... all these guys are good people. they may all coach different but they are good people. everyone has different opinions and people will never agree on the same thing. no i dont agree with how kennedy coaches but talking shit about him on here isnt going to change anything. then coach coleman is isnt a bad coach at all varsity is winning and i personally no that those girls put a hell of a lot of work into it at practice and coach helps them and pushes them to do their best. you can have you opinions but respect others,and just grow the hell up.
wow

Wow!!! Some of the parents need to act like parents and quit having temper tantrums!! I have never seen such a group of adults act like poor sports. You are such a great role model for your children!!!

Well Mindy how do you feel about your boyfriend Jay he has to sit on the bench all the time while Mr Ravye gets to play all the time no matter if he makes mistakes or not and not just him a few of the others.i know that Jay can play basketball i dont know what the deal is here.the boys on the bench should get a big hand for sitting there and not getting to play because it is not their fault. they do know how to play basketball.
