You know I find it very disturbing how Independence High School Softball has manipulated and altered the stats on maxpreps of certain players, including most recognizably coach's daughter whose batting average has jumped quite dramatically over two games and how many strikeouts she had left omitted from the stats the coach entered on maxpreps. It's very sad for the rest of the team and the rest of the girls who legitimately has earned a hit but never been credited with it! These girls have had the rug pulled from underneath them in a falsifying altered manner so coach's kid can shine. Is this becoming epidemic when coaches are coaching their kids in high school at the varsity level? When you have a coach's kid on the varsity team getting struck out and stats not reflecting this, or when this kid has one of the lowest batting averages and within a few games has surpassed some legit stats of some leaders in the central section, there's undeniably something wrong with this! Any opinions on this? My opinion is the coach is only there for their kid and the heck with the rest. This is very selfish and shame on coaches who do this just so they get recognized with either All Area, First team, or Second Team honors. There is always corruption when a coach has a kid on the team and they falsify stats to make their kid standout. Sad
