A Massachusetts school superintendent apologized for what she called an “unfortunate situation” after a girls’ basketball team from her district trounced another team in a state playoff game by a final score of 93-7.
The Boston Globe reports that the East Bridgewater Vikings toppled Madison Park by the eye-popping 86-point margin in the state’s Division 3 South tournament on Feb. 28. District superintendent Elizabeth Legault said that the score was not indicative of the student body or the athletic program.
The score didn’t run afoul of any rules, according to the MIAA.
The victory earned the fifth-seeded Vikings the right to advance in the tournament, but they were ultimately eliminated Sunday by the defending state champions from Archbishop Williams.
