Thank you, my point exactly! Public schools can do the same thing privates do under the same rules that both are bound by.
Not only that but at the smaller school sizes so much talent is wasted by lesser programs. Colfax had 41 girls turn out for volleyball, I bet that's more than the publics in the Cascade had turn out for football. Each of those girls has been dreaming of and working their arses off since grade school to play on the Bulldogs. There was a comment on Bsports.org about Colfax always being young and that's the reason. Most talent isn't born its made and if you kick out the privates I don't know that the Cascade publics would be anymore talented because they don't seem to develop what they got, they just whine about not having more.
Prairie, second best girl's BB program in the state after my Bulldogs. Now that I think about it, Colfax in the Bs now but in 1A as well, Prairie in 3A and LC in 4A, the three best girls BB programs in the state all things being equal and all three are public schools.
