: : You do know that your school is St. Lucy right?

: Fist of all, I don't have any stake in St. Lucy's, no daughter that goes there, not an alumnus. I have witnessed the type of girls that graduate there. It's about more than sports.

: Obviously he knows that and, obviously, St. Lucy's is not a "basketball school."
: But they do have standards. Unlike many schools, St. Lucy's focuses on strengthening the person, not just the athlete. So who are you to question these standards? What makes you the judge?

In all actuality, the league they are in is a joke (not the league itself, just the fact that St. Lucy's is expected to compete). Baseline League is filled with power houses year in and year out. And also, whoever said it is right.. So many schools have ZERO Standards for their coaches.. at the end of the day, no matter what school you're at, it's all about the young women turning into respectable humans for our society. There isn't enough of that going on in this small world!!! GOOD LUCK!
