Comment on Region Meet Questions. Didn't allow it there, but posting most of it here. Redacted school and region, but went ahead and let this former coach vent:

Lets go ahead and put them on blast. It was the XXXXX team, but things get very intresting here. Remember how they didn't post their results until way after the UIL had recieved them? And how they put multiple names in each box including the alternates? Now I wasnt born yesterday, hell I dont even coach anymore. But they were trying to "bamboozle" us, by putting alternates in the relays ( which may I say that officially the top 4 in entry should be the teams relay.. So no need with the trickery)
Second funny part about it, is why does the boys 200FR final only say there were 15 finalist? And this guy was supposed to be in the consolation, yet the final his name wasnt even in there? Now thats the part that really upsets me. Why?
Who was the meet director and who is the Coach and or Coaches that decided this would be okay? We preach to these kids to play by the rules, and yet we'll do anything to gain the upper hand. This starts with 1st the coach, not just shame on you but you shouldn't coach if you lack the integrity to play by the rules. This generation more than anything needs to understand things in life dont always go planned, yet if you stay focused and play by the rules good things will happen. I'm considerably upset by this. This one relay, alterated more than just respectability. This alters quite possibly other kids the chance to of possibly swimming at the state meet, this alters scoring and possibly someones title chances.
All around, shame on everyone involved. You play games, but we arent dumb region X-XX. Play us for fools, we'll treat you like one.
