    ASSOCIATED PRESS
    DALLAS–The coach of a Texas high school basketball team that beat another team 100-0 was fired yesterday, the same day he sent an email to a newspaper saying he will not apologize "for a wide-margin victory when my girls played with honour and integrity."

    Kyle Queal, the headmaster for Covenant School, said in the Dallas Morning News online edition that he could not answer if the firing was a direct result of coach Micah Grimes' email disagreeing with administrators who called the blowout "shameful."

    On its website last week, Covenant, a private Christian school, posted a statement regretting the outcome of its Jan. 13 shutout win over Dallas Academy: "It is shameful and an embarrassment that this happened. This clearly does not reflect a Christ-like and honourable approach to competition."

    Grimes, who has been criticized for letting the game get so far out of hand, made it clear in the email to the newspaper that he does not agree with his school's assessment.

    "In response to the statement posted on The Covenant School website, I do not agree with the apology or the notion that the Covenant School girls basketball team should feel embarrassed or ashamed," Grimes wrote in the email, according to the newspaper. ``We played the game as it was meant to be played."

    The Dallas Academy team has been recognized for refusing to give up during the lopsided contest.

    Just discovered that the coach, Micah Grimes, has been released by the school. Perhaps "Micah" might now have some time to read from the Old Teastament prophet for whom he was named:
    "This is what the Lord asks of you:
    only this, to act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly with your God."
    Micah 6:8
