Board Statement on IHSA
The press release by IHSA following the class 2A boys basketball championship game on March 9, 2013 was ill informed and poorly worded. In an attempt to be politically correct, the administration of IHSA made no attempt to access the severity of the actions taken by each coach. The statement made by Mr. Hickman that the IHSA was disappointed with and embarrassed by both teams implied that each team and coach was equally at fault. We strongly disagree with that conclusion.
Upon investigation of the facts surrounding the game, sanctions have been issued by IHSA. Again the administration of IHSA wants to be politically correct. The level of punishment each coach received is totally disproportionate to the actions taken by the coach. The implication that coach Smithpeters’ behavior was even remotely comparable to that of coach Thomas’ is absurd.
The Board of Education will not require coach Smithpeters to abide by IHSA sanctions. It will allow the coach, players, and parents of next year’s varsity boys basketball team to determine what course of action coach Smithpeters should follow.
