BTW, @NatalieB is a +0.6 now

@iacas, While it doesn’t change the outcome, you went above and beyond as a dad and you can be proud of that. A lot of parents would’ve been upset, but I doubt would’ve gone to the lengths you did to

The hits just keep on coming. Meet the 2020 District 10 and region girls golf all-stars District 10 Girls Golf All-Stars, selected by the Erie Times-News sta

It just seems that this got blown way out of proportion and it is hard to believe that they cannot see this. It also seems so easy to remedy. No one is trying to drag out where the letter came from. No one is trying to place blame on anyone. All they want is to have the chance to play. Good luck! I hope they get to play!

Geez. Getting to advance past district, and hopefully play in the state championship is one of those things that a high school athlete looks forward to most. To not be able to do that due the circumstances listed would be quite the disservice to those young ladies. I have sent a letter. Hope things turn out for the best.

Yes, all it would have taken on Friday or Saturday morning was to say "you know what, mistakes were made, but not by the girls themselves, so we'll let them re-enter and play." And all that would have to be done now is to say "you know, mistakes were made, but not by the girls themselves, so we'll expand the field at States by two and admit them to play, as they're clearly the two best players from the area/district/region."

Thank you!

Thank you for sending the letter!

This would be the simplest solution. It doesn’t stop the other two girls that “qualified” from competing, but allows the two that should have been in those spots to compete.

Looks better for them, too. Right now it looks like administrative BS and they don’t know what they’re doing.

BTW congrats on passing 10,000 posts.

Now back to our regularly scheduled shock and disbelief.

Sent via the PIAA website. Hope this all works out for them.

Thank you. I'm starting to suspect it will not. 😞

Sent a message to the PIAA. Read the OP several times and like @DeadMan said, each reread made me angrier. 

Thank you. I've gotten angry so many times, and cursed while telling so many people about this, that I've just about run out. Until it's all replenished again, that is.

Sent a letter through the website.

Unfortunately, many times ppl don't want to admit their errors or have a reason to not admit it besides foolish pride.

I hope this gets rectified. 

Thank you!

My letter is in.  I’m sure the PIAA will love it.  

What an egregious decision, at least thus far.

Hope we can swing their decision.

Thank you, Brad.

I'm honored that so many people see the tragedy in this and are willing to take the time to send a letter.

@iacas, at what point will you have a final ruling?

On the 20th, when the state championship is played and we're sitting in Erie.

We had a lawyer send a letter to them yesterday.

    • Does it occur to you that your friend is not the arbiter of what is or isn't appropriate?  He is one man with an opinion. And you seem to think that that trumps anyone else's. You may as well say that I as an Australian, represent everyone in my country and have the final say over anything to do with my country.  Funny how this is similar to you you thinking that Florida is doing great on Covid - but then you'd know, so we'll defer to you, in spite of the numbers and facts. You are passive aggressive and a troll. Actually, I don't think you are a troll. I fear you believe your own simplistic arguments. For your information, the Chief Wahoo image is part of an exhibit at the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia.  
    • You really don’t get it. Not do you realize how dumb statements like that are, apparently, because nobody would make such statements intentionally if they did.
    • Played 27 Holes today made 7 birdies today finally birdied the 1st, just the second and third left to birdie.
    • I’ll pass that along to him and his people.  👍
    • Played my second round (ever) at the course that I think will be a home course for me next year (the complex has two 18s... I have played the other 18, but not in over a decade).  Birdied #13 to improve my away composite to five birdies and a total of -4 (I still have yet to par a hole nine in 2021 ... anywhere).  My two-round composite at that course is a 77.  By contrast, no birdies so far at my home course (well beyond two rounds played... and at least three scheduled in the next two weeks!), and three holes there I've yet to par.
