Mr. White, you ask again the same question as to why the doors to the gym were locked for girls basketball tryouts at Calexico High.
As stated in an earlier letter it was done so to protect the prospective players and coaches from any confrontations and possible outside interference to the program. Plain and simple, it was done so in the best interest of the program. It was also done with the approval of the administration of Calexico High School. So I believe this question has been answered.
Mr. White, as stated in the previous letter, there were only three returning players from last year's varsity basketball team. Of these three girls, one plays volleyball and that takes priority since it is a fall sport, the other one was on this traveling team, so it only left one player and that does not make a team.
The coach depended on players from the J.V. level to fill the gap but as most kids in the summer, they had other things to do, such as holding down jobs that conflicted with the practice times, being out of town and yes, some were even on this traveling team that also played in Mexicali in the summer, which conflicted with the summer program at Calexico High School.
