Passion, athleticism, skills. Awesome combination.
Sounds like a great girl, but my question is how come her eligibility
wasn't challenged by UHSAA. Seems like when I read about some of these
other athletes whose family moves into different high school boundaries, they
become ineligible to participate. Just doesn't make sense to me. Even her
classmate the Mika kid couldn't play for Lone Peak last year even though
his family resides in those boundaries. Go figure. Shouldn't anyone be
able to live where they want and then attend the school that's boundaries
they live in???
PH-UHSAA's rules have exceptions. I too wish they were better at the
whole process. However in this case, what the parents had to do in order for her
to be eligible, is to fill out forms that the move was for a specific reason
other than for her to play at X school. Financial Hardship, Job transfer, or one
that is very common- "to be closer to family" (one not used in her case
I am sure, but often used to go around the UHSAA rules)
What is the criteria for this award? Anyone can see the statistics that the Des
News has published. Why is asking this question not civil? This seems to be an
award that players are striving for. Knowing the criteria would be helpful.
There is a criteria right? Or is it just an opinion? Just looking for some
