Basketball coaches, players deserved a little respect

By Staff | Jan 2, 2009

On Dec. 18, 2008, Spring Mills Middle School played Shepherdstown Middle School at Shepherdstown in girls basketball.

Before each game there was no announcement of the players and coaches. Worse yet, there was never any playing of the National Anthem.

The Shepherdstown cheerleaders were rude to the Spring Mills players by cheering when they were attempting their foul shots.

I feel Shepherdstown Middle showed a lack of respect for the players, the coaches, the parents, and the country.
