I was pleased PALY qualified for the playoffs after forfeiting 6 games. They are a wonderful and talented team and deserved to be included. I was dismayed however at the conduct of the coach during their semi-final game against Saint Francis Wednesday night. Throughout the game she was talking trash about the Saint Francis girls and complaining non-stop about the officiating in a voice loud enough to be heard in the stands across the field. It was one of the worst demonstrations of sportsmanship I have seen in a long while. I'm sure getting beat as badly as PALY got beat contributed to her emotions but as an adult, I expected much more. Congratulations PALY on a great season under trying circumstances.

I was also at the game last night and as a Palo Alto resident, I was embarassed by the actions of the PALY coach. The girls deserve a better role model. Belittling opposing players is not coaching and has no part in youth sports. Saint Francis was clearly the better team last night and deserved to win.
