Finally...a resolution

December 8, 2010 - Seth Staskey
It was quite refreshing Tuesday to log onto this website, Facebook, Twitter and countless others around the tri-state area and see that there was an ending to the saga that is the South Charleston, Brooke, SSAC, Martinsburg, Supreme Court fiasco. It was ruled by the West Virginia Supreme Court that the decision rested solely with the SSAC and wasn't up for debate or discussion in a courtroom.

The SSAC then proceeded to rule the South Charleston players, who were ejected for their role in a brawl during a quarterfinal game against Hurricane last month, ineligible and ordered S. Charleston to forfeit, which put Brooke into its second consecutive SSAC Class AAA State Title game this Saturday.

I think the Supreme Court did its job. If the SSAC was overruled, why does the organization or any throughout the country like it exist. It's the ruling body for prep sports in West Virginia. It has a rule in place and a group of parents tried to over-step their boundaries.

Now, here's the part I don't agree with. Why, when forecasts are calling for temperatures in the 30s, would they play the game at 7 p.m.? Why not play at its scheduled time of noon. Plus, there's little chance of getting neutral observers to come when it's that cold at night.

Hopefully, the Bruins realize you don't get second chances in life too often and don't let this one pass them by. A Brooke victory would complete the OVAC sweep of the SSAC titles.
