Ad Feedback

A Texas high school girl's basketball team that won a game 100-0 now has "blowout remorse."

The Covenant School, a private christian school in Texas, trampled The Dallas Academy on Jan. 13.

But now the winning school says they went too far with their margin of victory and are forfeiting.

The Dallas Academy is a school that specializes in teaching children with learning disabilities.

"A victory without honor is a great loss," a Covenant School team member said. "This does not reflect a Christ-like and honorable approach to competition."

The man who oversees private school athletics in Texas has a message for the loosing team that has not won a game in four seasons.

He said he admires the girls for continuing to compete against all odds.

Jim Richardson, headmaster at the Dallas Academy, accepted the apology and said that the two schools remain friends.
