Mitchell High boys basketball put on 1-year probation


John Varlas , USA TODAY NETWORK – Tennessee Published 7:43 p.m. CT March 23, 2017 | Updated 11:08 p.m. CT March 23, 2017
Mitchell High's boys basketball team has been placed on one years' probation for a pair of incidents at last week's Class A state basketball tournament.In a letter to school principal Kelvin Meeks, the TSSAA informed the school that it was being punished for having unauthorized people in the bench area and for a fan that came out of the stands to confront an official.
The probation will not affect Mitchell's postseason play next year
he TSSAA said the incidents created an unsportsmanlike atmosphere.The school was fined a total of $750 — $250 for the incident and $500 additional for the probation itself.
Mitchell lost to eventual state champion Harriman in the quarterfinals on March 16, ending a run of three straight titles.

Memphis is going to Memphis.....

You know I used to teach and live in Memphis. Been a long time ago but while I was there I worked I a great school with lots of good students, fellow staff members and great parental support. You comments label lots of good people unnecessarily. But I think you already knew that. Low blow indeed.

My son plays travel ball in Memphis. We have kids from 5 different Memphis schools and they are all very respectful kids. No need to stereotype. We often play in the Binghamton at Lester Middle and we have yet to have a problem inside or outside the gym.

First it was a fan that came on the court. As for too many people on the bench I am.still trying to fivure that ons out..They only give 7 floor passes and the arena staff enforces that rule well..With that said I did write a corrective action plan and gave it to.the principal to.send to t the TSSAA.
