FOOTHILL WINS NCS VOLLEYBALL
Original post made by Justice is served, Birdland, on May 23, 2010
Fact: On Thursday night, the North Coast Section told Foothill's administration the game could be changed if Amador agreed to it. Foothill proposed both a Friday night game or a Saturday afternoon game, as late as 4 p.m. Their repeated attempts to work out a change was denied by Amador, who insisted the game was played at 7 p.m. Saturday night.
Fact: Not only did it deny the Foothill seniors from making the majority of their Senior Ball, but it also denied many Foothill students from attending the game.
Well, karma came through as Foothill came through winning the title on Amador's home court. At some point, a lesson should be learned here. Pleasanton is allegedly a Community of Character, but in regards to the Amador volleyball program, it couldn't be further from the truth.
Try and make an argument, but the facts are simple and documented through the NCS office. Amador was offered two seperate chances to change the game and both times they said no, trying for an advantage. Perhaps had they complied, Foothill wouldn't have additional motivation.
Congrats to Amador's coach and administration for inspiring the Foothill players -- have fun hanging that second place banner Amador!!!
