The women basketball team for Arlington High School will be returning to the postseason, a minimum of momentarily, after a postgame occurrence triggered them to leave their spot in the playoffs on March 2. This is a result of a limiting order a judge has actually positioned versus Arlington High School, its board of education and the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association, according to a report from the Memphis Commercial Appeal.
The limiting order prevents TSSAA sanctions from working against the ladies basketball group. A hearing will be hung on Tuesday to figure out if the order will be supported for the state competition. Arlington is set up to continue its journey in the sectional competition on Monday versus Collierville.
Prior to the short-lived order, Arlington had its season end suddenly when the kid of one of the group’s coaches chose to punch Dyer County High School coach Derrick McCord in the face consistently following a game on March 2. In addition to the postseason ban this year, Arlington faced fines and other penalties.
The child was later exposed to be the son of Arlington’s head coach, and even though he does not participate in the school where his mama is the coach, the penalty was still imposed towards his papa’s program.
In a statement provided to local station FOX13, Arlington Community Schools mentioned law enforcement to keep in mind that this attack didn’t precisely come out of nowhere, but likewise noted the penalties that the board is thinking about.
” It’s been reported to police that the Dyer County coach was supposedly directing insults towards the AHS coach after last night’s video game in the car park when the event including the minor happened,” a declaration to FOX13 read. “The minor will not be allowed on A/C residential or commercial property for the remainder of the school year, and we are reviewing the actions of the Dyer County coach to figure out whether a competitive partnership will continue in the future.”
