There is not an issue of race between the two incidents that happen with Hixson and East Hamilton and Brainerd and Howard girls. The TFP needs to print the complete happenings between Hixson and East Hamilton and the real punishments that both teams received. East Hamilton student section and fans are the worst in the area. They started the incident between Hixson and East Hamilton with their foul language and classless action from the student section. This all started when an East Hamilton parent came from across the gym at EH and confronted a Hixson parent for telling his son to quit using the language he was using towards the Hixson parents and fans. There was not a punch thrown from either side during what took place in the stands. The adminisrtation from Hixson punished the players who went into the stands and the TSSAA placed the boys basketball team on two years probation and fined the school $1250 total over the next two years. Not what th TFP has reported. I heard the EH appealed their infractions and TSSAA resended their punishment. That is not fair to Hixson when they clearly did not start what happened at EH. I think EH needs to be placed on probation and fined also by TSSAA. The administration at EH needs to do some inhouse investigations about their rude fans and student section. This is not just the first time this has heppened. Their fans are the worst in the Chattahooga area.
If the TFP would print what really happened at East Hamilton and Hixson there is not a comparison between the two incidents. East Hamilton fans started what happened and a East Hamilton parent confronted a Hixson parent of one of their players. There were no punches thrown during this disturbance from any side. Hixson's punishment is two years probation for the boys basketball team and only a total of 1250 dollars in fines over the next two years. This is clealy not a race issue. It is punishment fits the crime. I would like for the TFP to clearify this. I would like for the TSSAA to stick to their rulling against East Hamilton also because it was their fans who started what went down at East Hamiton that night vs. Hixson. Hixson does not need tobe made out as the bad guys here. East Hamiltons student section and fans are very rude and use foul language and their administration should investigate themselves. I have heard this happens alot concerning their fans at sporting events.
