They all need to be replaced they are coaching terrible. They have some talent on their teams but dont seem to see it. You pay peanuts you get monkeys. Come on school board our kids deserve better than this. Please make changes before its to late. Dont give the anymore of our hard earned tax money PLEASE

I couldn't agree more. Even now with all the new coaches the programs are still in trouble. Something needs to be done and it has to start with the parents and the community to push our school to do right by our student athletes.

I am glad to see you are so worried about the status of our athletics and not academics. "Lets push our school to do right by our student athletes." What about our students? Athletics should be secondary in the grand scheme of things and academics should always be the focus of our schools.

I really feel like people need to quit complaining all the time about coaches. If your kid isn't any good ,then it has to be the coaches fault. Try putting this much into the academic programs,then it could be the math teachers fault if your kid isn't any good at math. we all like to blame each other, but the truth is, we are not all cut out to play ball

I absolutely agree that academics should be the first priority to all our schools. However,our school has set rules for athletes and grades. Once a student has met those guidelines why should they be "rewarded" with a mediocre at best athletic program? Our student athletes HAVE put an emphasis on their academics or they would not be allowed to take part in the sport. I blame no childs lack of talent on any coach. I blame a lacking PROGRAM on the coach. That is after all in their job description of coaching. Would you stay employed if your job performance was below standards?

Well looky looky, they did it again. Where's the girls softball team? I know we have enough girls with enough talent to play, but again. Our great coaching staff tore it apart what was there. When is the school board going to hire good coach, don't be saying we dont have the money because you all did give the Middletown school away for nothing now did you. Whose bright ideal was that. Hey lets build on and move out then we will give it away for less than 10,000.00 again not a smart choice. but again not your money is it. Your right MR ED R home schooling looks better and better

I fail to see how the school not having a softball team is pushed off on the coach entirely.
She did her job. The parents and athletes failed to hold up their end of the bargain. She immediately went back to coaching on a college level. I believe that speaks for itself.

Sorry folks.......none come close to Clopton.....when one of your coaches puts a child in the Children's hospital for a month, you let me know. And that coach is at Montgomery City High now. He doesn't coach maybe he sweeps the floor.
