To the editor:
Please let me apologize to the Perry community and anyone who may have been offended at Saturday’s Perry vs. Boone girls’ basketball game. There were incidences where some of our students did not demonstrate the sportsmanship we typically see in our student body.
During and after the game, individual students were addressed, and on Monday these concerns were addressed with the entire student body. As a result, in our boys’ basketball game against ADM Monday and our girls’ basketball game against Pella Tuesday, the students were very supportive of our players and respectful of the opposing team.
We look forward to our boys’ basketball game Thursday to return to a positive environment of good sportsmanship and respect between our two communities.
