I didn't -- a girls' basketball team scored big on Tuesday night we mean really big they wanna game 107.

Currently there -- wanted and right number ten in the state.
So we would have went we we just see it as.
Two programs that are about all of pull -- -- -- the -- I would say sell a but I think there's a lot of teams that are substantially better than their opponents they don't win by a 105 points would you be disappointed if a team.
Under your jurisdiction won by a 105 point could you be angry -- coach.
Well I mean.
We trust you know what we trust the book itself in those do it in in their coaches after all that they could.
To try to keep the integrity and sportsmanship Beth -- and you know there are things you can do like ticket -- off and things of that nature that we we feel like they did a decent job of them.
