EAST BRIDGEWATER — East Bridgewater’s schools superintendent issued an apology after the high school’s girls’ basketball team won a state tournament game last week by 86 points.
The Vikings beat Madison Park, 93-7, Feb. 28 in the first round of the Division 3 South tournament.
Elizabeth Legault, the district’s superintendent, called the score an “unfortunate situation,” saying it is not a reflection of the high school’s student body or athletic program.
Andrew MacDonald, East Bridgewater’s coach, has declined to comment.
East Bridgewater (17-5), seeded fifth in Division 3 South, was eliminated Sunday in a 52-33 loss to defending state champion Archbishop Williams. Madison Park, seeded 12th, finished 10-10.
The MIAA says East Bridgewater did not violate any rules.
