I have read all of these different topics and can't believe some of the crazy things that are being said. I just wish that people would look at this for what it was for, the kids. Please, go read your kids facebook pages and see how upset they are about the possibility of no merged sports. They are devistated.
All of you talk here about how bad the teams were last year and seem to forget that both schools had kids on the teams and that not all of the coaches were from St. Johnsville, many coaches were OE coaches.
And, I find it crazy that we seem to only focus on the boys and not look at what this had done for the girls. Softball was WAC champions last year with girls from both schools. Volleyball and Basketball needed both schools to help their field teams and Varsity, JV, and Modified. Soccer needed both schools to field Varsity and JV.
Maybe this merger did not go through but don't start slamming sports teams and the good they and the coaches have done to bring those kids together.
I don't like every coach either and feel that some have an agenda that is not necessarily best for kids but best for them but that should be brought up as a reason not to have that coach there any more. Not as a reason to deprive these kids of something that is working. Look at the boys soccer team this year they are doing great. Look at the girls team.
I hope that everyone goes and thinks about the kids a little more. If there is a coach or AD to complain about go to the board(s) and make your opinions known but don't take it out on the kids.

To bad we have people like you that are closed minded and only worry about them selves. We have to look to the future not behind us and now the kids lose out.

Its to bad for the kids on both teams, however OE board needed to think about the kids when they had their little dictatorship vote. If you have a problem because some kids cant play on St J. teams then go complain to your board. We cant give up positions on our teams anymore without something in return. Enroll in our schools as students and your kid is a SAINT.

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark...that's for sure....why didn't the OE board let the public vote on this anyway?
They agreed to the merger study and snuffed it out a few weeks before the public vote? It's a disgrace they wasted NYS taxpayers money on the study if they weren't serious! Shame on the OE board

I've talked kids and coaches, both schools, OE can't field anything, ST J will struggle but, will have numbers for most except jv sports In soccer and baseball. Go Hawks. Where? Look at their record before merged teams, A disgrace. By the way ST J band is pretty good at a less cost. C Frasier, A Brown, B Smith. You reap what you sew.

If we cut JV we can field EVERY sport. I've talked to coaches too. And St. J band is terrible, don't lie.

Hey Get Real,
Let me tell you something. This is about the CHILDREN'S EDUCATION AND CHANCE TO HAVE MORE. SPORTS KEEP CHILDREN OCCUPIED AND OUT OF TROUBLE. Sports also teach a child how to work and get along with others ("real world" skills).
Must be you did not play sports.
What do you even do for a living?
Again this is about childrens education not your education. However it may help you to take some classes at FMCC, because anyone that follows your posts can come to the conclusion that you are not educated very well.

P.S. Attack my kids, my neices and nephews,and what is best for our communities. I will attack you.
You are a FOOL that has not stated any facts, just lies. I pity your soul.

hea get real this can and does happen a kid gets hurt or killed playing a sport that is true and yes 1 death is 1 to many. but a carpenter can be killed or have a head or neck injury falling from a ladder so we must stop building i guess. the schools job is to at least get these kids an education and there diploma and some kids only stay in school for the sports and finish with the diploma so it is a win win. take the sports and you as a tax payer will be paying for oh say 60 years while on welfare so u choose dumb ass!!!!!!!

I am with you to funny... St. Johnsville voted sports OUT of their budget NOT OE, so stop saying that it's St. Johnsville's sports... it's not. And to all of you crying about OE NOT having sports... NO it's St. Johnsville who doesn't/won't have a sports team if this merger doesn't go through!! Look at what YOU (you wonderful St. Johnsville taxpayers) voted for! All I see is everyone bitching about sports or band.. tell me what that has to do with students making it once they are out of school? How many rural kids get a chance in the big leagues (1 out of thousands maybe).

ST j girls won soccer in states, won girls basketball in states, boys have played in state two times in basketball, once in baseball. Both have won numerous section tittles. name last Hawk appearance in either? The only connection with academics is that without sports some kids will give up and leave school, that means more state aid is lost and more courses will be cut. It's a snowball rolling downhill. It may be a idea to poll how many kids would transfer out of both schools if they dropped all actities, except the basic educational requirements
