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!

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.

    • Water?!  According to tournaments on TV they don't call it water anymore.  It's a "penalty area".  When I become dehydrated I always go for a glass of penalty area.
    • Have you seen these?
    • So, I had been thinking about one of these after watching some videos of it.  I've been struggling with contact, and it's really been messing with my mind.  When I would hit balls, I would hit a great shot, and then follow it up with a shank or skulled shot.  I started to feel like Charles Barkley in my downswing. While noodling around on Facebook Marketplace, I ran across someone selling one in a package of golf stuff for $20.00.  I got the Smart Ball, plus a small turf mat with a couple of rubber tees, as well as a third that holds an actual tee, a Ziploc bag full of assorted tees, ball markers, and divot tools (as well as a small bottle of nail polish 😕), a Smart Glove to help me with flipping, a set of alignment sticks, and a shag-bag full of balls. I used the Smart Ball (with my old Tour Striker club) and really felt a lot more connected through my swing.  It really helped me to get through the impact zone with authority, and make much crisper contact.  I will keep using this, and highly recommend it.
    • A neighbor just gave us some AlmostGolf balls, and wow are they great.  Solid off the clubface, and they travel a lot farther than the Callaway balls I have been using.  I got a new pack of the Callaways for Christmas, and they feel a lot lighter than the older ones, so they sort of balloon in the wind and don't travel nearly as far. I took my 58° wedge and was hitting the AlmostGolf balls as far as I hit the Callaway balls with my 9 iron.  I am going to protect these with my life.
