    Yeah, I think that was enough time. :)

    I do believe the school's coach did the right thing. They made sure they followed the doctor's instructions and worked to protect her and her unborn child. I wonder how it all turned out.

    "a spokesperson said it was standard policy at Arlington Heights High School and throughout the district to require students who get injured or develop a medical condition to get a written release from a doctor before they can return to the team."

    A doctor's ok only makes sense.

    Of course volleyball is the least of her problems.

    Yes. The correct decision. If she miscarried the law suit would cost the school millions.

    Yes the coach made the right choice although it is not clear as to his real reasons. It is a shame that she is so proud of her fornication now made public. Even going so far as making a video of her condition. The coach is now the bad guy and she is a victim. The only thing I would say is that the coach should have been more open and honest about why she cannot play even if it costs him his job. The total lack of morals today is rampant because the church has become tasteless.
