I wish to pass my congratulations on to Bridgeport girls basketball team. In my opinion you are champs. It is a shame that home grown girls are cheated by the recruiting practices carried on by GEHS. My daughter, a senior, chose not to play because what was happening in greenbrier east was wrong. It was difficult to cheer for our own high school when you know that 4 of the starters were brought here and oh yeah, there parents were given work after and even stipens for rent. East's other junior guard from last years team even left for Va. after she was threatened and feared for her safety by those that recruited her.
We have tried here in gbr. co. to stop the cheating and were threatened to be sued. Maybe Bridgeport and GW and all the other teams that were denied their proper spot in the state tourney can raise a collective voice to stop the illegal practices in Greenbrier. God knows I tried.
HA!

Good for your daughter she was obviously raised with proper principles and moral values. Greenbrier East cheated and won but there is always a payback coming. I too know they been doing under handed tactics. GREENBRIER EAST GIRLS BASKETBALL HAD TO CHEAT TO WIN THE STATE FINALS!!!! I dont know how the parents can face their children. They are teaching them that under handed deals and buying payers win at the school level. Ugh!,,

If this is true also, then it is extremely sad that high school sports has come to this! We all know what goes on here in the Greenbrier Valley and the majority of us are embarrassed by it, not proud!

All schools recruit. Remember when North Marion won the boys state tournament a few years ago with those 2 foriegn exchange students who both went on to play D1 college ball? Or how about Nick Carbacio who played for 4 different high schools in 4 years? Its sadly, a part of the high school game. All the best players in Harrison Co get recruited by Bridgeport.
please
