Maybe I could have left that out I agree. I think what I'm trying to say is our kids are taking it play by play one game at a time.....If in response to my comment, I knew somebody would take that personally. Was trying to be objective and not give offense. This year's WM team just didn't look as fast and athletic across the board to me as some past ones.
Hey, I'd love for WM to win a title. Would be great for the YVC. Plus like a lot AHS grads I've got family on that side of the river and some went to WM. Lot of respect for WM from this AHS fan - would like to think it is given back but comments like "stick it" suggest otherwise. . . .
Now finish strong and good luck. . . .
The NCHSAA implemented new rules that there would not be any practice allowed for football other than conditioning until ten school days before the start of final exams. By the time the new "spring practice" period started Talbert had resigned. I think Herlocker worked with them in the weight room and with conditioning all school year. No idea what went on in the summer.I have no doubt that Talbert was close to the kids, but again why did they do nothing from the end of the season till Aug.1
I think the former booster president's children moved due to academic offerings, or lack there of, which is an issue at Albemarle and can only be corrected with a redistricting plan that does not allow any transfers out. I will not speak for him but that is my guess. He put in a lot of hours and effort with the booster club and as a volunteer coach.Once again spike check your facts. Like Btango said the former booster president is a great guy and actually took his kids out of gray stone and sent them to AHS. The current AD has always lived in NS district but has coached for AHS for a few years now and loves AHS. The former booster pres kid is a senior and decided to leave because of everything and people attacking AHS. He is a great kid as well.
I was actually told "it's the stanly county way, they never do what makes sense". I just seen where on the 2014-2015 report cards all schools showed improvement. AHS showed improvement and was 3 pts away from a C, let's see what Mr Kilgore is able to accomplish this year. It is estimated that by redistricting AHS will add 100 kids maybe more now. Open enrollment for a week was a joke and accomplished nothing except allowing NS and WS to better their athletics lol.
Why did it take the threat of closing the school to get people involved? One of the biggest issues at the school has been lack of parental involvement.We as a county and community have to stand together.
My question is,who's fighting for AHS on the school board? I see a lot of posters on here that claim this is wrong and have love for AHS, but I don't here anybody putting their names on the ballet next year...
AHS will not be shut down.
That sounds like me....Why did it take the threat of closing the school to get people involved? One of the biggest issues at the school has been lack of parental involvement.
Here is the perfect person that needs to run for school board: African American, educated, born and raised in town but has lived or worked outside the county, attended Albemarle, understands the dynamics of budget, needs, wants, and requirements, and has passion for the community and kids. Get that person involved now.
Who does this guy think we are? "Boom Boom the Fool"! I was done bashing and promised to hold my tongue, but that just made my blood boil!Coach Smith blamed some of our problems on the early start time. Sorry coach but I'm not buying that.
1. Why would they want to transfer to West during the last open enrollment? The open enrollment was meant to hurt Albemarle. South wasn't affected during that time...Sway, how many baseball players transferred into West last enrollment? None that I know of, so why would they next time?
Lets be realistic. How many of the seniors have taken an SAT and made a decent score? How many seniors are qualified academically to attend college (D1 or D2)? How many players that can realistically qualify are good enough to play D2 ball? You have to take it one step at a time. Send out film on a bunch of players that are not qualified or are marginal for the next level you crush it for every qualified player that comes behind them.Who does this guy think we are? "Boom Boom the Fool"! I was done bashing and promised to hold my tongue, but that just made my blood boil!
I wounder how many seniors will go off to college with a partial scholarship from Albemarle? Is he working on getting tape out to Div III colleges. Jeez Louise, I'm flabbergasted here, shocked, feel bamboozled, hoodwinked and "LIED TOO".
@btango SS and Albemarle will merge friend, you can bet your social security on that. There will be another open enrollment, so all the baseball players will go to West Stanly, via their parents dropping them off, and all the football players will split between West and Albemarle, you can take a wild guess on the reasons why. I bet you.
That's why I said D3Lets be realistic. How many of the seniors have taken an SAT and made a decent score? How many seniors are qualified academically to attend college (D1 or D2)?
